The 2 fish are feeding well on most everything, one (assumed male) is dominating the o ther fish very heavily. The other fish (assumed female) is very tatty and niped fins.

I will be getting some coral skeletons nex week so will try them.

Will also be getting an assorted bunch of 20-30 gobies so will see what comes of that.

Also for not for others, Matt Wittenrichs book suggests using live black worms as a conditioning diet and this can help get a female full of eggs quickly and reduce fighting, or more specifically the male being to territorial.
