The Colombian Shark looks cool. Did not know they could do both freshwater and saltwater. How did you acclimate him to the saltwater?

Acclimated literally by opening the bag pouring in water every 15 minutes for about an hour. I had two at one point but the other jumped out

Cool, I was reading online and they said they need to start out in freshwater as a young fish, and can be moved over to salt. That fish might be a good candidate for my 90 gallon some day.

Just saw this and read up on liveaquaria. It looks like they agree that they do fine in salt water. Makes me want to try it too. I wonder how they would be in a reef, it says they are peaceful.

They are very peaceful until it come to feeding time. Mine has sucked up crabs and one of clowns but spit em both out, with my experience with him coral wont get fed. Once he senses food he goes after all food sources if its on coral till eat from it.
