Wow 4 weeks keeping a Moorish Idol alive ! That's great ! They normally only last a day or two.
What are you feeding him ? Can you post a picture ?

good news Gil is now doing fine his diet now consist of chopped clams and oysters, as well as clams in a shell broken open for him so he can pick it out himself. I'm also feeding him brine shrimp and fresh seaweed. I learned he needs to be fed 4 times a day though thats why he was stressing also i found out that some of the other fish like the clown fish and the choc starfish really enjoy these items as well so i have to keep a close eye on them to make sure the don't gobble up the food before gil gets a chance to eat. Gil is one spoiled fish.

Actually, most marine forums would burn anyone with a moorish... apparantly only 1 in 100 make it to the LFS and the chances of that one living is pretty small.... I hope yours gets big and healthy... can you post some pics?
