    I Have recently got a snowflake eel, and it eats A LOT! I still have 0 nitrates and phosphates but I did have algae start growing. I feel my nutrient levels have gone up. I would like to lower their nutrients levels so I could add sps to my tank. I was thinking I would either add a 5-10g...

I would feed them live ghost shrimp, that I harvested at my boat dock and quarantined...

    My 2' snowflake eel we've had about a year. When we first bought him he went on a hunger strike for 2 weeks at which point we discovered that he hates silversides which was why he wasn't eating. So for the past year he's been chowing down on krill..... until a week ago. We got some new tank...
