Re NT labs micro crumb - never spotted that before. Do the pipefish take it? Is it sinking or 'floating' (as in more neutrally buoyant - not on the surface)?cheers, yep kept them a few times and different types.
Once you get them eating they are great.
I am feeding the NT Labs micro crumb, Live daphnia, mix of frozen daphnia, cyclops and lobster eggs, Decapsulated BS eggs. And of course in the long run the shrimplets from the colon of shrimp.
They are hard to get hold of initially, but once you build up a relationship with the sellers that can get them in. It gets a little easier. I find most of the time ebay has them. And I send messages to as many LFS in and around me to ask if they can get them in.
I find it helps to turn off the filters when feeding, as they are more able to get to the food. Also helps that is Use long pipettes filled with frozen and live foods and squeeze out a little at a time in one location so they get used to where the food will be.
They are behaving axactly as I had imagined. And anchor themselves to the Ferns or rest in amongst them.

I've been trying for a while to find something that tank raised dwarf puffers can be persuaded to try.

The tank is looking good!
Don't know if you already do it, but I hope you don't mind my piece of advice. I see you're having the same problem I did with algae in the moss. Moss acts like a filter sponge, so I believe the issue with mine was mostly due to detritus accumulation in the moss (I didn't know better at the time and didn't even clean mine). You should try using a paint brush on the moss before water changes to remove waste and hopefully reduce the amount of algae on it.
