I have had my blue ribbon eel for about one year now. For the first few weeks I tried to feed it ghost shrimp with no success. I then tried medium size gold fish, which he gobbled up. I fed him one every 3-5 days. Recently he went about three weeks without eating. I went through a ton of feeder fish, then I tried small feeder fish and now he eats 1-2 fish a day. He is my favorite animal in my 180 reef tank.

Just got our lipstick tang today for our reef system, keeping fingers crossed..we have 2 "nemo clowns" 3 chromos, and a yellow tang. Also some peppermint shrimp, snails, small crabs, and corals. Tank has been up and running since November, and is a 70 gallon tank. Also have about 130 pounds of live rock in there. New at this, but also found that I prefer to take about 8 gallons out a week and add back + 2 of fresh for evaporation. Think more often and less works better. Our tang started grazing the minute let him (or her) loose. We have quite a bit of green and red alge growing in there. Good Luck to all, and to me too, will write back and let know how made out.

Brown banded cat shark (bamboo). I currently have a 22inch one, a male. You can tell by the claspers underneath the bottom two back fins, females don't have them. Mine currently lives with a picasso trigger. No problems at all. A bit agressive, or should we say eager, when feeding. Currently housed in a 150 gallon tank with a pf600 skimmer. Thinking of adding a big sump to increase water volume along with live rock, system works well. Hope this short piece helps. mikey birmingham(ENGLAND)

This fish is territorial but not too agressive. The one I have, likes to hide behind live rock, and will only comeout if my other fish come close to his territory. I will keep him for now.

I am head aquarist at The Fountain Hotel where we have a 1000 gallon marine tank. We have recently acquired a blue spotted ray and he really is a very nice looking fish. He will share the tank with a Bamboo Cat-Shark, who has just laid six egg cases, four yellow sailfin tangs, a Naso Tang, a Lion Fish and my biggest head-ache a Sgt. Major Damsel fish. He attacks just about everything, except our shark, and has avoided all attempts at capture. Back to the drawing board.
