Do you have more than 1 tank, as all your previous post were all about a 55gal? If so, do not get it. If you are going to upgrade in the future, then wait till then. They need a 180 minimum with great filtration and a good skimmer to help the bio-load

Na 55 gallon is now housing my sebasian milk snake man. Bought a new house couple months ago, so i went big all the way across my back livingroom wall. Got a 220 gallon with 88 gallon sump. Also with a xp4 canister underneath and a emperor 400 off the back. Space and filtration not a question. I know about the bamboo and he will grow nearly 20 inches his first year topping out 40inches. I want my little guy healthy so need to know what the best is on the menu for him starting out. Thanks

Started mine off on krill. Ate the first day. I also have a banded hound shark and coral cat both eat krill and medium sized shrimp from the store. I add vitamins as well.

No the banded bamboo is different from the coral cat. People get the mixed up a lot though. Mine is white spotted bamboo.
