Julian’s Thing hit our aquarium product review bench just in time for us to try it out on a frightful triggerfish. About a week ago we obtained a hybrid picasso triggerfish which has been almost completely un-socialized with other fish for over a year so in our very active and well-flowed 150 gallon fish tank this triggerfish has naturally been hiding deep in one of the rocks. The structure of the fish-tank reef scape is really convoluted and there would be no practical way to stick our hands deep in the matrix to target feed this fish, and especially not without spooking our jittery Rhinecanthus.
With the use of Julian’s Thing we were able to easily and discreetly target feed the triggerfish some mysis shrimp without spooking it and it worked! The hand powered piston precisely controlled the amount of fluid discharged from the feeding tip and the long shaft easily penetrated deep into the cave of the fish. The hybrid triggerfish had his first bite to eat in nearly a week and minutes after feeding he is now feeling much more confident about his environment and coming out to look for more food. Of course Julian’s thing can be used to target feed all manner of corals and invertebrates but in our case, it was a unique triggerfish that was the recipient of a nutritious squirt from Julian’s Thing.
