food

most fares are accepted by tyhe fish that were listed..except puffers wich will sometimes be picky about foods and need some snail,fish, crustacean intervention....or rays wich tend to always start out picky and prefer live.

I just learned that AqAdvisor does brackish fish. It says that 6 monos would take up way over 100% of the stock. Are you sure these fish have to be in schools? I love these guys, but they just get too big for 6 of them.

I was kinda thinking that the DG and the KG might be a problem. Thanks for the advice!

So a brackish school is still 6 fish? Are there any other great brackish fish that don't have to be in schools?
