It ate the frozen Hikar Mysis shrimp on sunday night however after that...
Hello. A few days ago I got a Longnose Hawkfish.

I bought a used 30g setup with livestock from a good friend who was getting out of the hobby. Before I would take possession of the tank I read his 2 books twice, then bought one of my own and read it twice. This brought me up to speed on what I had missed since college. Liverock, livesand...
We have a 450g reef and are currently filling up a 360g predator tank to move the animals out of a 150. They both feed into a 300g sump/fuge/skimmer tub. We're running two Euro-Reef RS-250 skimmers. Nitrates creep up to 20 sometimes but a 150g water change takes care of that...
My two fire shrimp they were doing great &&I left for the weekend last week &&haven*t seen them since. Looked around the tank, &&in the filter. Rearranged my rocks the other day. No sign of them. Any ideas about what could have happened?
Hey ive been looking on youtube and around here but theres nothing really detailed on making your own fish trap.. I read a little on the bottle trick but it is really short winded and doesn't explain a whole lot.. Anyways is it a better option to just go on Ebay and but the "reefpit" or one of...

RIght now I feed my two clowns and longnose hawkfish mysis shrimp once a day. Twice a week I give the clowns flake instead of mysis to vary the diet, but the longnose hawkfish won't eat them
I saw him once snap at a flake and then he spit it out, but the clowns eat the stuff like crazy.
