My new tankmates!!!

Lol so here's a pic of my 2 foot long snowflake and my little volitan lionfish.

I've had my snowflake now for almost two weeks and he has not ate yet however not too worried.

Bought my volitan lion yesterday and my bait shrimp are disappearing. Lol his belly is so big right now.

I put 17 live bait shrimp in the tank a few days ago hoping my eel would take a interest and no he didn't take an interest at all.

Anyways most of the bait shrimp died Proballby cause I didn't acclimate them but a good strong 10 of them survived. So I put the lion in yesterday with them now I'm down to 5 or 6 of them. All my lion does now is sleep in his perched up position.

Also put a cuc of snails and 1x chocolate starfish. I have no idea where my starfish is hiding.

Anyways thanks for viewing

The eel is actually really boring. Kinda just sits there and seldom does he move and perch his head out of somewhere else.

Over the last two weeks of owning him I've only caught him twice swimming around the tank.

If I had to do it again I would have bought a baby so it would learn its in captivity.
Mine is a full grown straight from the ocean and obvious not use to a tank or being feed food so it's a lil difficult thus far. Besides that he is in perfect health and fat even though I have yet to get him to eat.
