I have a porcup[ine puffer I bought a week ago now named mugsy. I have been trying to feed him a variety of foods from clam, brine, freeze dried krill, shrimp, and mussels. I haven't seen him eat the food yet. It's gone but I believe that is from my snowflake eel coming out and taking. Any suggestions on what I should try?

    Try using tong and feed him directly.  Once they start eating its hard to slow them down.

The term for when a fish changes its gender is sexual dimorphism. These are a great temperate species but are very territorial. So make sure their line of view is disrupted as they go by an 'out of sight, out of mind' way of thinking although some bickering will always occur.

I'd like to know what would be a good number of these Chromises to add in a 75 gallon tank ?

    How many inches of substrate do you have and how much in the way of decor?

    They appreciate company so four to eight fish would work depending on how many other fish you have.

We just started our Saltwater aquarium about 2 months ago. Everything is great! We purchased a Talbot's Damsel. We have been watching him closely and he has been picking up shells and moving from behind a piece of Coral. Is this normal? Nesting? He is really a lot of fun to watch! Has any one else seen this activity.

These fish are always active even at night. They school during the day and at night they separate into groups of two. I have 10 of these chromis and they get along with my clownfish, tangs, shrimps, and don't nip at my clams or corals. But they do like to play (chase) each other around my elephant ear coral, and they bring water movement to it. I highly recommend this fish to everybody, experienced and beginners.

    Are their any other Angels in the tank?  What other fish are in there?  They do need a large tank so they can have their own territory.  Water condition are also very important to keeping this fish happy.

I bought several chromis when I started my tank and the lonely survivor beat the stuffing out of all others. (and out of any later ones I added - in groups) So this guy is now the only one. I'm not getting any more because that would just be a waste of perfectly happy little fish (and money).

When we bought our lawnmower blennie, my husband thought he was ugly, but I fell in love with him right away. He has EYELASHES! How could ya not love a fish with eyelashes? And he kisses. We love him. We also have a scooter blennie, who is just as adorable as 'lennie the blennie'
