I bought the baby briareus, he got here on the 16th. I still however, cannot get the little guy to eat and it is now the 20th. He has two chromis, one damsel and an assortment of crabs. Need for concern or not yet?
Earlier this evening I talked with Jay and I believe the little briareus is so small (1/2 inch mantle) that it's probably eating amphipods, which are plentiful in his tank. He's provided plenty of food in the form of small crabs and snails, too. His water parameters are fine, so that's not a problem.
I also made the same suggestion that Cuttlegirl makes - that he remove the fish, which is possible for him to do.
I was just watching him cruise around the tank and suck on crab shells, he was also putting his legs into a ball of chaetamorph ( I dont think thats spelled right) to get out amphipods. I think he just needed to get used to his new home.
