      I picked up a RBTA from Terry over at Seahorse on Sunday and drip acclimated "her" for 1-1/2 hours before introducing to the tank.   That evening she moved into under a ledge to a very shady spot with low flow.   For the last 48 hours she hasn't moved.   Tonight I offered her a small (approx the size of one half of a peanut) piece of raw shrimp from New Seasons.   She took it quickly and readily.   
      I tried to err on the side of caution with the portion side... I don't want to feed more than she can handle or create any stress.   I'm not planning to spot feed  her again for a couple of days.
      if anyone has any commentary feel free to share...   Too much / too little / too soon to feed?    Pic below from when I first put in the tank, and a second one from just a moment ago (note I lightened the second pic to show a little more detail).

      I was looking around for acclimation videos and found this interview with Reef2Reef and Steve Tyree:

      There isn't a whole lot going on in the video (because it's an interview), but there is a lot of good information being said. I just threw it on in the background and listened to it. Definitely have a better understanding of the pests you might find and dipping corals.
