Week1 of a moray eel in a tanganykan + crab tank by Chip
Hi, The shop advised me to add salt if I were to put a moray eel. Since I already have a successful formula in keeping a tanganykan tank, I did not add salt, even though tanganykan cichlids can sustain some salt. It has been one week since inception of a 1 foot moray eel. At first, the moray eel...

Population explosion P Liongior, M Estherae by A Shaw
These guys are on an unending breeding spree. These fish sacrifice weeks of eating just so they can go at it again and again. In fact I'm certain their growth has been stunted by their extra-curicular activities, they are barely 2.5" long and haven't grown. I bought them at the same time as a...
