So. Was planning on doing a reef 55. And was at the Lfs
yesterday and say a little spotted puffer I just fell in love with. So I just decided to throw away the reef idea with this tank and stick with a fowlr
. So here is what I'm worried about. Yesterday when I got home slowly got him used to my tank and put him in. At first he just hid under one of the over hangs and a couple hours then started to swim around a lot more. The guy that sold him to me said to go ahead and feed him that night so I fed him a little of frozen mysis shrimp. (about half a block) he swam around and ate up about all of if. So I get home from work today and went to feed him again and it didn't seem like he tried to eat any of it so I tried putting in a half shell clam. He picked at it a little bit but only like once or twice. Now I have been getting this tank ready for reef for about 4 months now. So there r a couple cleaner shrimp and peppermint shrimp in the tank. Along with snails and crabs. And I know that puffers will eat all that. So far he has left the shrimp alone. Working on setting up a second tank before he decides they r food. As well as sone mushrooms I have in the tank as well. I have a green spotted and figure 8 in another tank and they r always wanting food. So I'm very worried about him not eating today. Am I just over worried since I just got him and just need to calm down?
Best pic he would let me take of him.
Have two marineland power heads in the tank one on each side a 600 with the propeller end and a 1200 with the small tubed end. Could it be that there is to much curent for him to want to cone out.
I seem him picking at the live rock and even at o e of my turbo snail. But on a bot here and there and then back to just staying in the rock caves in the back.
Also got a half black angel as well. He is swimming all over the tank stopping here and there to pic and nibble at diff stuff. Using my phone for a camera and he won't stop long enough to get a pic of him.
Sorry for all the stupid questions.
