I am adding a chaeto reactor on Friday to help with nutrient control and I am worried it may rid my tank of film and GHA which is the only thing my LMB seems to eat. I am also worried if he only eats mostly film algae he will waste away.

What are some solution to get him eating I have tried flakes/nori/garlic soaked nori/algae wafers/mysis/brine/sinking algae pellets and recently I have tried a homemade mix of food which I am trying to get him to at least taste "he has spit out mysis and brine in the past ignores the nori sheets or using them to perch". He is mostly eating off of my powerheads/glass and a bit off the rockwork.


Any advice would be appreciated.

Thank you
