I got an aptasia eating filefish from my LFS. He cleaned out heir tanks fairly efficiently and has mopped up mine fairly well. What should I watch for him eating next. He seems to be eating pods and the prozen food I give him. He seems happy with that but in your experiance what else will he eat so I can watch for it.

So the story is keep them well fed and they might be fine. He seems to be eating a lot of pods at this point. I have plenty of those for his snackies so I'll keep an eye on him.

What’s next is find him a new home before he starts eating your corals
