hi colin!

I think the serpent stays away from Ink cause Ink always steals his food! I noticed as soon as I put prawn in the water, the serpent is always the first to appear. Probably trying to get a head start before Ink realizes there's food! It's funny though, because for a creature that's so primitive, it senses immediately food has been put in the water.

Hi Carol,
Do you just drop the food in and both Ink and the serpent star find it? I've always used a feeding stick for Ollie and also used that stick to stuff food among the urchin's spines,

Hi Nancy!

I just drop the prawn in. Never used a feeding stick. Ink and Serpent hunt for the frozen prawn! Ink feels everywhere with his legs, including the starfish and after he's grabbed everything he can find, then he retreats to eat it! If he's near the top of the tank, I hand feed him. Live food he hunts! Both of them always sense when I've added food to the tank, even if they're both out of sight!
