Sorry no pics, but hes about 2'', and I was wondering what to feed him other than freeze dried bloodworms. I know a variety is good for any fish, so i want to expand my food arsenal. i do have freeze dried plankton and krill for an arowana, but it floats. He is currently in a 75, with plans to move him when he is larger to a 240. He gets along with the arowana, as he has his own caves and the aro prowls the top.

earthworms and superworms come to mind... prawns and raw market shrimp would be great also (cut to size of course).

Red wigglers, cut up fish like salmon, catfish, whiting, cod, smelt, mackeral. And any other seafood like clams, shrimp, squid, mussles. The list is endless. I like to check out the local asian market becuase they have all kinds of odd things that the fish love. I freeze in whole pieses and then just shave off thin slices and deforst, then cut up to the size I need. It is very easy this way and the fish get a good, healthy varied diet. And they really seem to love it too.

Was going to suggest prawns and raw market shrimp as well. Just go to your local supermarket and by some frozen shrimps for the freezer. Cheap and good.

I fed the cat an unshelled baby shrimp from Tops. When should he eat large meals, once a day or every other day?

He's still just a baby, so do feed him at least a small meal everyday.
Every other day is for when the monsters grow up.
