Lol it does stink really bad, I bet if you have a blocked nose it would probably clear it.

I feed mine frozen mysis with a syringe and an 8" or so piece of air line tubing. At first, it didn't want to eat, but now as soon as the air line hits the water, it's digging at it. Same goes for my pink spotted watchman, and my cleaner shrimp.

I don't think mine really ate for the first 5 days. I read somewhere that they prefer to eat at night, so I feed them every night before I go to bed, after the lights are off. Not sure if that matters or not, as I have done that from the beginning.

I have moonlights, and I leave the light on at the top of the stairs (where the tank is), so it's not so dark you can see in the tank.

I woke up this morning to my cardinal dead on the side of the circulation pump. The weird thing was that i had a dream about something bad happening to my tank last night

Ended up going to the store this morning and ordering a royal gramma which i will be picking up tomorrow
