just read up on that right before I saw this post. I will be getting a bottle for sure.

Im thinking of trying to get it to eat using live feeder shrimp, Is this a good or bad idea? I dont want to teach it to only except live foods I want it to eat fresh shrimp, scallop, squid, and what not but live shrimp.

I wouldn't feed him freshwater shrimp. And you ciudad supplement the shrimps food with selcon. But the selcon will lose some nutritional value even if you filled the shrimps belly with selcon.

Wasn't planning on freshwater shrimp. I'm going to use selcon in his food for sure. I guess I'll just hope he takes well to fresh shrimp and never even be interested in live.

My final question is should I hatch him in a 40g reef or a 75g fowlr. If he was hatched in the 40 I would move him to the 75g as soon as he started feeding well. I just don't know if he will be difficult to feed in the 75g because of my eel. But then again if I just feed my eel first tell he's full I should be able to feed the shark without him hassling it because he retreats back to his den when he's full.

I say the 75g. These fellas still are pretty big when they hatch.

Man that would be cool if you got it a little younger and you took a picture of it every single day until it hatched and did a time lapse of it.

well i dont know what I am doing wrong. I woke up today and looked at my egg and the yoke is once again broken. This time I made sure I never touched it after I put it in the tank. For entire time I have had it i only touched it when putting it in the tank. I have no idea what could be going on with it and I think im going to throw in the towel on the whole shark egg thing. Ill just buy a shark later.

Really bums me out. I feel so terrible because I feel as though im doing something wrong but there is no way I caused that to happen
