Tank swap is complete (seemed to go well). This guy is loving the smaller grained sand in the new tank.

I’m assuming this is one of the two pop eyes?

Your tank should be the definition of venomous reef

I’ve posted a few pics of my fish collection here before but figured I should start a tank thread as I’m setting a new tank up.

This was my most recent tank:

This is by far my favourite scorp, I wish I could dedicate a whole tank to one. They’re beautiful but oh my god the faces!
They’re such a pain to convert to anything but live food. Sadly they might not ever make it to the main tank as they’re just not able to compete at feeding time :(

What does it take to feed this tank? I presume that it is way more involved than tossing some flakes in...
Ha that’s definitely true.

I tend to feed about 100-200 live river shrimp each weekend and in the week I feed frozen twice.

Some of the fish will take it as it’s falling down the water column:

Whilst others I tend to target feed on a feeding stick to make sure they get enough food.
