Adorable little monster

Recommended Posts

He's an angler, the little white spot on his head in the first picture is his lure. It comes out a few inches and he waves it around to attract food. It's so cool to watch!

He just took his first frozen food! Apparently, they'll eat anything that moves if you wait until lights out when they have they're lure out.

 

This is awesome news for me! I can sustain a much healthier long term diet for the fish this way. I'll be feeding mainly small pieces of frozen tilapia, plus some scallops and clams.

What size tank is it in? Any other inhabitants?

 

Jason at OIAB had a brown and white one last time I was in.

It's in my 40 gallon. There's a few peppermint shrimp and a bicolor blenny. This is the same species as the one Jason has, just a different color. His is close to full size, mine is only half that. The shrimp will be dinner at some point. I'm hoping the blenny is smart enough to stay away.

Been reading up on these little guys and they are interesting......I am thinking of getting one now.

 

How often do you feed?
