    what do y’all use to feed Fathead Dendro or do you know what works? I have nano reef roids and regular fish pellets. And will be picking up a single Dendro frag next week, what do you recommend.
    Thanks,John

    Both of those foods will work but they like meaty foods, frozen mysis, lrs ect. They aren't picky.

    I don't directly feed my dendro, but I put it in a good flow area so it grabs whatever frozen food I feed my fish. It seems to like it all including algae.

    I have a fat head in my frag tank that has gone from two to six heads in about 18 months. I have to keep it in the frag tank otherwise the fish steal all its food - even at night. Mine are quite large so I feed it krill.

    I make a mix of reef roids, mysis, and coral frenzy...mix it all together in a cup of tank water and then feed it to all of my corals. I bought my dendros with 2 heads almost 2 years ago...I have 20+ heads now.

    I feed a variety of frozen foods for the fish. I feed the dendros at the same time.

    I squirt a little newly hatched brine shrimp at mine. Easy to make sure they all get some that way
