    I have had a decorator crab for about 3 weeks or more now. He is nocturnal and only comes out to feed around 11 pm. I have to wave clam around the tank to draw him out and he'll climb up and grab the food. The last couple nights, I haven't been able to get him to come out. I'm just dangling...

    I purchased a Snowflake eel (?) 5 days ago, without knowing what kind of eel it was. The eel is 18 inches long. He is in a predicament and I'm wondering if it is an emergency. He attempted to eat a little stubby gray algae eater!! He can't swallow it. It is in past his jaws except for a small...

    I have two new perculas that are about an inch and a quarter. I took two out of a school of eight over at the store. I bought marine flakes and new life spectrum pellets but both seem too big for them to eat, although they still eat some of the flakes. So I found these 0.5 mm pellets online. I...

    Hello TRT. I've researched high and low for a good answer, but I've drawn a blank at every turn, and I'm hoping someone who's had the same problem will have the solution! The problem seems relatively mild, I have a porcupine puffer, Porky, who's not very old (I'd say ~1 year), still small for...

    I put a green bubble tip anemone in my tank yesterday. Despite the fact that he seems to have chosen the worst possible place in the tank to hang out, I am wondering about feeding. The LFS said they were feeding krill, so I bought some frozen krill. My anemone is pretty good size (4 - 5"...

    I've been having trouble getting my Valentini Puffer to eat over the past week that I have had him. I popped down to the local grocery store and picked up some squid and muscles. I have tried cutting these up into very small pieces and they're still far too big for any of my fish to eat...

    Bought my first Valentini Puffer on Saturday and i'm struggling to get him to eat. I've tried live and frozen brine shrimp as that is all I have in. Any tips on food they really enjoy so i'm not wasting money on food he wont eat?? He's still a youngster measuring just over an inch...
