I just feed mine flake 90% of the time.
I think you should feed him some mixed frozen food like krill,
mysids, etc. Flakes every day might not be giving him all nutrition..


Flake foods are pretty good these days, especially if you mix them up..
Still, they do like the occassional burst of frozen shrimp.

Mike and Pszemol -
I do feed them frozen Marine Cuisine once in a while. Mostly flake
though. Hey Psz - do you actually have baby maroons you've raised?


I've had mine for about 6-7 years. I'd like to get rid of him, actually;
he's VERY territorial :-)

Mike


LOL! Yep, my one maroon is very mean. I don't even like to put my
hands in the tank - he attacks immediately.

Yes, but they are adults now... :-)

I have traded almost all 70 survivers about 1.5" each to the local stores..

Kept the last 4 smallest ones and put them in two separate small tanks.

One pair died after unfortunate feeding with some suspected live brine
shrimp but *the other pair is doing well in my second tank (10g only!)
and they now breeding, too. In fact they deposited new eggs yesterday
evening on the rock under a large rose bubble-tip anemone.

So I had the pleasure to observe the full life cycle of these fish, from
tiny,
almost invisible fry, then the funny-swimming larvae and now adults.


That's very impressive! Maybe I should try that in my 20 gallon.

I put my large net over the sebae, and he hides under it; only way I can
get my hand in the tank.

Be prepared for hundreds, thousands of fry and massive amounts
of food like rotifers, later artemia & cyclopeeze. 20 gallons might
cause big water problems later, with growing fish. My 60 grow up
in 30 gallons and I had never-ending problems with water quality...
It is best to prepare several tanks and group fish when they grow
up by size, to keep in one tank fish of similar size. Otherwise they
fight too much. A lot of work for about half a year before they are
big enough to bring them to the fish store or give away to people.
But you can learn a lot and have a lot of fun and satisfaction when
they survive in reasonable quantities... Go for it! :-)

I might just try it. I raised freshwater angels for years - years ago.
Too bad I got rid of all the breeder tanks.

Read about the proper diet rich in fatty acids to avoid my mistake
which caused my fish to massively die due to the "sudden death
syndrome", which was caused by fish suffering from their under
developed nervous system.

I tried to rise them only once using two batches of eggs/fry...
Out of couple thousand fry from two batches only 60-70 fish
survived my first attempt. Massive die off in first couple of weeks.

Due to the amount of time and work involved also large space
required for tanks, water changes, air pumps, etc (I just rent a small
appartment so no room for experiments like these) I have never
repeated my attempt after this first, successful one.

Be prepared with some problems with unloading large amounts
of fish -- it is hard to find local places where you can give them
10 small fish every week and it is not worth it to ship them :-)

I had 20 tanks set up for breeding angelfish. It was fun for a while,
but like you said, after the first few batches sold to the pet store,
they couldn't take them anymore. And maintaining that many tanks,
especially during power failures, was quite a hassle.

Forgot to mention - the electric bill was pretty high too.
