I buy these packs of small frozen prawns and feed him a few every 2-3 days. I've only fed him by hand since he is so small and his bites won't puncture my skin but I'm trying to find another way to feed him lol.

No they're not those small cubes, it's just one rectangle of frozen prawns. I'll take a pic when I get home tomorrow because I forgot what it's called.

And every fish needs a varied diet. You could buy tilapia and give it a little bit or different seafoods. So far I've only fed it the prawns so that it doesn't develop a taste for fish lol

Hmmm I'm maybe , just maybe considering an eel for my new tank. Just worried that he will wiggle out somehow or get into the overflow... How likely is that with these guys?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Mine has stayed inside the tank so far. My tank is 21" high and my eel is only a foot long so it would be difficult for it to climb out, and they aren't good swimmers.

Skip fishy business and go around the corner to oceans direct.

fishy has alot of rare stuff but there are always dead fish and floaters and it just isnt good. I was tempted to buy a fish the other day there but there were deadones next to him so I passed. Check out his $20 corals rack though if you do go. I got a spectacular balstomussa for $20 the other day. he also has alot of expensive australian corals if thats your thing.

oceans direct is open form 12-5 tomorrow, i just got my sale email from them. They have a much cleaner shop, never seen a dead fish there yet and their coral prices can be obscenely cheap sometimes, specially if you like SPS. he had an awesome eel last week i was eying, thats what gave me the idea....I wouldnt hesitate to buy fish form oceans direct. If you need the addy for it I can get their business card for you.
