I have a baby tank raised octo that seems to eat anything I put in her tank. Today I was out of mysis shrimp and guppies, so I put some brine shrimp pellets in there and she scarfed them down.

What else do you think she'd like? Any problems feeding live guppies or ghost shrimp?

Thanks,
Alanna & Squirt

I have had some dwarf octos that loved thawed out packaged Krill...I never tried shrimp pellets...good idea! Variety is the spice, after all...

Seeing that this is your first post, :welcome: to TONMO.com
Guppies might not be such a good idea as they might have been treated with copper based medications which are toxic to cephs. Ghost shrimps fine.
