If fed frozen or freeze-dried that should help him on not seeing other things as food. But u can't fight instinct.

Carey was what you pulled out hollow? Also when something molts the will be soft for a bit so he maybe hiding until his shell stiffens up some. We have two cray fish and that's what they do.

Hopefully we can report health and coexistence. This guy was on sale and was fed before being bagged. The guy talked with his hands while we where talking about lights. He was still holding the bag...

Lights what 2 bulb combo will give us a purple tint and still grow well

I couldnt tell, but when I tossed it into the garbage can it fell apart so maybe it was a molt. I usually have at least one molt going on every week as I have so many shrimp and crabs. Plus i just did a water change and they always molt right after one for some reason, I guess it's the added elements.

So, is an eel a good idea? I;m seriously thinking about gettingone for the 90g. But I also would like some other cool things and not sure whats compatible. LOL I'll take those questiosn to my thread later, sorry for hogging yours.

Eels are great! I wish I had a 125g so I can get a zebra moray eel! They look awesome.

Carey your not hogging. From what I've read. An eel would work very well in an aggressive tank (90g your working on). And snowflakes are peaceful enough for a mixed reef.

I want a wolf eel when we get our predator tank going. Eels need a place to hide, like under a rock. And we all have rocks.

Wolf eels aren't really eels though. I think they're gobies.
