4/4 of the nautiluses have achieved proper neutral buoyancy. I am trying to get them all to feed by way of scavanging, however Doggy is much more adept to tank life so far and manages to grab anything first.
Hoping his ravenous appetite does not cause growth and health problems!
I'm going to buy some red LED and see if I can do a better job of photographing. The blues just aren't camera friendly.
So far Zilch is still floating at the top but seems to be doing fine. He seems to want food daily but eats different amounts. Some days he just nibbles and drops the food and then seems to want more but repeats the nibble and drop. Other days he will eat two small shrimp (popcorn shrimp sized shell on, head off) or the meat from the arm of a blue crab claw.
