    Talking

    Hey everyone! It's been a while. ^_^
    I recently purchased a dog faced puffer fish and I must say I love it! I love everything about it. Its ugly and unique lol
    Anyways, the thing is that last night the puffer fish ate my feather duster worm! I was crushed but I couldnt do anything. So I was wondering if the puffer fish would eat something else? Here's a list of my invertebrates:

    -pecil sea urchins
    -starfish
    -sea apple
    -anemone
    -a little clam

    Thanx!

    Although we always kept fish separated from invertabrates, I would say that it would sure have a tough time doing anything with any of them. The urchin is probably safe and the anemone has its own protection. Sea apples are supposed to be poisonous. A starfish and clam? Personally, I would have a separate tank for fish. I'd take more seriously those who keep fish and inverts together, with their replies.

    Cool

    Ok. It's been 3 days and he only ate the feather duster worm. He doesn't want to eat pellets. The seller told me to buy the frozen food which contains tiny shellfish (frozen cubes), but last time when I fed those to my fish they just started to drop like flies! 6_6 So I decided to just feed them with pellets and so far none of my fishes have died ever since. I know they sell these kinds of "worms" which are dry and come compressed in little cubes and you just insert them in the water and shake'em a little bit and it brakes into little swimming pieces that look like worms. Maybe I can feed him that?

    Its "part" of the US. I don't think it will ever be a state. Besides we're in bad conditions. They raised everythin! The electricity, the water, the cofee, the gasoline, the cars, everything! They're sucking the money out of us!

    Anyway, back to the topic, Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!!! ^_^ I bought tiny frozen shrimps and he's eating like there's no tomorow! And wow, he got huge! (not that he inflated or anything, he just ate alot). I'm happy that he's happy. Thanx!!! You guys are alot of help.

    Cheers,
    erick
