Anyone have an Angler

I was looking at one today. Are they hard to take care of? Will they eat clam, krill anything like that?

thanks

I thought jamal-188 had one. Maybe he'll see this and give some advice. I'm no help. Sorry.

And they can reduce any pesky mosquitoes you may have in the house!
More seriously, the London Aquarium has a beautiful Angler tank. The tank is only about 7/8ths full with driftwood and plants that extend above the surface. I haven't been so lucky, but I understand you can often see the Anglers taking pot shots.

I would love an angler. however, my love of small fish makes that an impossibility.

but those red puffy guys are so cute though!

I've been sold a few anglers here and there. From what i've heard , read, and practiced with the ones in the store, i've seen them eat krill sometimes, but more often ghost shrimp and guppies. They are more interested in the live stuff but i've heard you can train them over to frozen foods with some success like lionfish.
