Hey korrvalmoria gets some brightly colored coral to decorate the tank. I've either kept a reef with red, orange, and yellows or a tank with artificial coral from Living Color.

I am ultra happy to be a owner of my very first frog fish named Sitri. Okay so here is my question:
He doesn't seem to like my kessil? During the day he hide at the back of the tank, at night he sits perched up on a specific rock. He's been in the tank about three days now ate withing thirty minutes of being put into the DT.

No one cares aye? Lol update I've had him since Sunday he has eaten a few ghost shrimp. Seems to be turning black to match the sand maybe haha. Any suggestions on what the best food is for these guys. I don't want to do mollies or anything fw. I really want to feed him marine food to try and match his diet as best as possible.. any suggestions?

Sorry for you loss and thanks for the tips. I read that with the vitamins you soak the food before feedings.. how do you accomplish this with live food?

This thread has me super paranoid.. I've literally for the last few days just been waiting for him to die because of all the unexpected deaths that occur.. which mostly seem due to over feedings or them getting ahold of a too large for a meal tank mate and dying.. I'm getting rid of my clown fish for this reason. But other than that he seems fine? He just sits there so it's hard to tell.. he's growing stuff on his skin to match the tank and stuff.. so who knows man..I'll keep you folks updated

Update. He's still alive.. won't accept any frozen yet. Tried to starve him out sorta and see if he would eat the silversides then. But he didn't I came home and his sides looking caved in.. so I caved and threw him a ghost shrimp which he ate right away. Then a second one two days later. He's growing, looking okay I guess? I've been trying to starve out the rest of the tank so that the peppermint shrimp will get stupid hungry and end up becoming a meal to my FF.

Well this thread was alive at one point in time but has seem to have died... Shame update the ****er is still alive.. Upgraded his food to a damsel a couple times a week and ghost shrimp the rest. A couple days after he ate a fish then a ghost shrimp he went after and ate my peppermint shrimp. I didn't care about the shrimp I wanted him to die anyways cuz he's been stealing food from my acans when I target feed. I guess I'm concerned that he ate too much over a few days time.. I guess time will tell I caught him "yawning" a few times nothing major and no labored breathing and it's been about a day since the peppermint eating

Thanks man, when this one goes I won't get another for some time I don't think.. I realize now that they require a higher care then I think most of us can give? Or they just have a shitty lifespan or hardiness lol idk

What is the difference in size between the two? I think as long as the clown is half of the frog or less it should be fine. Just to introduce my self, I am currently on the hunt for a frogfish, hoping for a sargassum or striated. I am ****ed that. I missed the one on DD.

The clown was 3/4 it's size... The clown was much larger when I introduced the frog.. I didn't expect him to grow so quickly.. in a months time he doubled in size

Hopefully he can digest it, what kind of clown just out of curiosity? Does he look bloated? I guess you have to just wait it out.
