How often (if ever) should I target feed a Serpent Star?
I picked up a Serpent Star last weekend to help with my clean up. The LFS
told me I could try feeding it fresh fish, so I went out and bought some Cod. I cut a piece about 1/4 inch by 1/2 inch and poked the Star in the leg with it. Right away, it took the Cod, wrapped itself around the Cod. When I checked later, the body of the Star was larger (from the Cod I presume). Now the Star has not moved much in the last day, probably still digesting or something, or just lazy. The body of the Star went back to normal size as well.
Should I leave the Star to wander around the tank looking for food, or do this on a regular basis?
