I got an albino bristlenosed pleco that is smaller than the nail on my little finger. He is voracious though.
Today I got a red lizard fish, freshwater not saltwater. They are a type of whip tail. I've never had one of these. I hope he does well. Right now he is about 2.5 inches long. Cute little thing.
We handfed our eels with a Turkey Baster. Frozen/thawed Bloodworms. Target feeding. Once they got weight on and picked out hiding spots, we fed the eels mostly after lights out, if they hadn't learned to come out during normal feeding ( they do learn to come out ).
