In this thread I will guide you how I trained mine I am aware that there...

    So I've got myself a blue spotted puffer added to my 55 gallon FOWLR tank. i know my puffers beak grows continuously, so I've been recommended to feed it hard shelled shrimp along with mysis and brine, aquid and all that. what type of "hard shelled shrimp" do they books mean?

    The question says it all. I know that mysis shrimp is decent nutrition for our fish, but why do I hear the PE Mysis mentioned much more then others? I've always used the Ocean Nutrition brand with great results, but is there something that PE adds to their brand that makes it more appetizing or...
  8. Seahorses & Pipefish
    Hello! Since my seahorse died:bawling: I got a pipefish. He's an alligator pipe and he's about 7 inches long. I've figured out that he likes eating live ghost shrimp, but getting 10+ ghost shrimp a week would be expensive. I'm trying to get him to eat frozen mysis, but he ignores them. He won't...

    I've had a longnose butterfly for about 2 weeks now. When I first got him, he was eating the frozen Mysis shrimp I was feeding. However for the past 2 days he wants nothing to do with the Mysis. What else should I be feeding? I only feed once a day, in the evenings.

    I have a small 15 gallon tank, with two clownfish, two bengali cardinals, and a watchmen gobi. I have been feeding them frozen brine fish, which they go crazy for, and sometimes flakes as a quick substitute. They pounce on either food and clean the tank quick. After reading advice that said that...

  14. General Reef Discussion
    So some time ago i posted a thread with ideas from fellow TRTers on how to ween my copperband onto frozen foods. After exhausting all food options and feeding every sea creature under the sea, he finally starting just eating some mysid soaked in garlic. I think the key to this (in my particular...

    I was just wondering what method of target feeding everyone uses. I'm fairly new to coral but i noticed that some of my zoas caught some thawed mysis shrimp and to my surprised consumed it fairly quickly. I thought zoas needed only light but i guess i was wrong. So far I have just been grabbing...

    Hi everyone, Wanted to get some opinions on frozen foods. Recently i have been feeding a variety of frozen foods mixed together. I do this by taking frozen cubes of mysis, brine shrimp, cyclops, daphnia, chopped oyster and reef snow. Currently i take equal parts of each, thaw them mix together...

    When someone talks about feeding their tank mysis shrimp are they normally reffering to freeze dried or frozen? Is there a benefit of using one over the other? Are these any good for feeding LPS and anemones...

    Is there any benefits of feeding mysid shrimp over vitamin enriched brine shrimp? I know a varied diet is optimal, but if you compared the two, which should be the staple? I've read that mysid is more nutritional than plain brine shrimp, but how much does the "vitamin enriched" make up for...
