    My eel sure loves some chopped octopus. What are you all feeding yours?

    That's funny I fed mine octopus tonight also, he almost comes out of the tank. I get this awesome combo pack at the asian market; octopus tentacles. baby octopus, and squid. he goes crazy over squid too. I have a legally blind pink tail trigger in my 210 fowlr that I stick feed, he loves octopus and squid also, the others not so much. I also feed shrimp and silversides. I tried other types of fish but it was too messy.

    Hey #woodguy how was the fimbriated. I've thought about one, are they of similar size and temperament as the jeweled.

    Went into observation on Tuesday. Took some krill off of a stick yesterday so I feel confident. I had some live small mollies and ghosties living with him, I saw him trying to catch a ghostie yesterday. He was very timid about taking him down; he's about 2' and very thin so he still might be a baby. I figured I'd try and stick feed him, I had to make the pieces really small but he took a fair amount. I'll try again tomorrow.

    My snowflake is getting big I should take a newer pic. I got this guy at maybe 8" he was pretty small but now he's over 12" and a lot thicker.

    In the past I kept garden eels. I had to give them away before I moved. Some of my all time favorite creatures to keep. The splendid (orange ones) are not as hearty as the regular spotted ones.

    My last golden dwarf turned down everything I offered in the first two weeks. Shrimp, cod fillet, oyster, scallop... so I tried squid and he instantly took it. With this eel I had him eating two days after he arrived. Dwarfs love squid.

    Lots of dwarfs on here. This is Bobby. He is my second dwarf (I lost my first during a tank transfer. I think he burned himself wrapping around a heater). He made it through a 76 day QT while the DT was fallow for velvet (Didn't eat for over a month during a CP treatment) but immediately found his new home under a rock. He eats whatever is on the tongs. He eats squid, whitefish, silverslides, scallop, clam, etc.
