HA Hitchhiker

So I just started my first saltwater tank I got the salt to stabilize so I went to the LFS to get some live rock to help cycle the tank found a nice peace for the tank lots of little holes and such with a little bit of plant life on it so the guy bagged it up I went home (30 min drive) I placed the rock in the tank and then to my amazement a little half inch yellow tail damsel came swimming out of a hole!!! dam thing held its breath for about an hour ! so what should I get to feed this little guy?

Marine flakes, vitamin fortified brine or mysis shrimp. That is one lucky fish.

I really dont know what your LFS has but if you have a Petsmart near you they have a good selection of frozen and flake and pellet food. Just make sure it is in the marine area. This what I use as far as flake.

I did. But my LFS put a piece of LR in a bag of water for me to take home. When I got home he was out of the rock and swimming in the bag. After 5 yrs he is still with me. Was yours in water or dry. Here he is

I had a brittle star hitch hike on a piece of LR from my LFS.

Haha that is awesome. I bought a msuhroom rock a couple months ago and after the guy bagged it and put it on the counter I saw this little emerald crab in there with it. I pointed it out to him and he was like free emerald crab. So that was cool.
