I'll be upgrading to a 75g hopefully this weekend, and next year I plan on upgrading to at least a 125!

Hi Rpbustillo

I enjoyed my Snow for about 6 months in our 75g. Bow front. The first month was a treat.... Snowy didnt eat much, but was a sand digger, clearing under my rocks. I could observe him under the tank through the glass. They seem to be diggers, it was ok, til the rocks started settling, which caused my corals to fall and then some snails started disappearing. Then.. then worse happened. I lost my Hawaiian Red Reef Lobster... I cried. But I endured... After that, I could hand feed him, he loved a product called Reef Frenzy from NC ( Good Stuff ). I loved feeding him, but when I noticed him nipping at my Coral Beauty and my two mated clowns.. I said... Snowy needed a new home.

Thats the hard part!! Catching the little buger...lol I had to remove one side of the tank rocks and put a divider in to trap him on the sand only side. Once I did this, HE WAS FAST!!!!.... Used two nets and still managed to escape and snaked across the floor and behind the tank... OMG. But then he submitted to me.

At my local fish store, Salt water only place. The owner was very patience and he took him for trade. Snowy was now 23" long and bigger than a man's thumb round. Snowy found a home in a 200g tank, with large fish and rock. Today he is big.... 30" and 3" in diameter..

My advise..... Get them small.. 6" or less and the 100g tank with rock only.

Thanks for letting me share, I'm Chase and I'm a Salt-a-holic....

That's a moray....sorry for the pun.

You might investigate engineer gobies. They grow to about 12" and are every bit as beautiful as the snow flake is. With the added advantage he doesn't eat all the other fish. They are the ultimate digger, so be sure your rocks are sitting on the bottom.

I also have an engineer goby and he is awesome and I got my father in law one also. They are both about 8" now and very neat fish. Though my father in laws didn't take to the sand for the first few months. He swam around with all the other fish.

Hey Gregcoyote,

A Moray... Yes.... I had NO idea they could get so big... I'm going to research the engineer Goby..... Do you know the price on them? My LPS gets great stock, and seems to find the hard to find

Thanks Chase Beach

They are inexpensive. I should think under $50. They don't look anything like the adults when they are young.
