oh, once a day seem's fine to me, no prob, there, when you gonna get another ceph and what type of ceph you planning on getting then(if you want one, sorry for rushing into thing's but after you got one you want more to have and breed lol)?
p.s.- it should be in another tank and do it after a month or after 5 week's lol. :)

lol believe me vulgaris i would love another ceph. Unfortunatly the only other tank i have is a 12 gallon for all of my crabs, shrimp, etc. I dont have the cash to start another tank. However, in times to come i have no doubt that i will be setting up other larger tanks.

Hey Dave,

hmmmm i havnt really thought about it yet, but candidly the last thing my parents want is another tank. they love the one i have and they love rocky, but its not really inexpensive to setup and maintain a tank. Well, maybe maintaining it is reletively inexpensive but u know what i mean.

mike, yeah, it's in no way inexpensive, my first set-up accumulated to some $450 so it wasn't all that exciting, *shrug*!

hey everyone,

Im happy to say that Rocky seems to be doing fine. For the most part he is up and about the tank all day. However, one thing has me a little concerned. When i fed him his frozen (thawed) fish today he tried grabbing my finger and putting it close t his mouth, so i put the fish (on a toothpick) closer to him and he took it from me. He was eating it for about 10 minuets when he started spitting it out. I want to know why isnt he eating this?? Also, when i fed him his snail (live) yesterday he grabed it, took it to a hidden place, and was gone the rest of the day. However, when i feed him his fish he doesnt hide. I dont understand iv been feeding him fish ever since he has been with me (every other day i give him some live food). can someone please help me?

thanks

Mike, could it be that you've spoiled him and now he wants live food all the time?

Hi Mike,

Ollie has always spit out things he isn't in the mood for. Also, his tastes changed from time to time. He ate scallop for some time, then one day he wouldn't eat it. So always have a variety of food on hand.

:periscop:

Re: getting a video, Joel is right, just send it to me via email as an attachment...

but I suspect Mike's problems have more to do with his ability to turn his video image feed into an actual file. Is that correct Mike? Not sure I can help you there... you might want to read any Help material that comes along with the software you're using... Let me know any specific questions though and I'm happy to help...

hi guys,

I will work on the video. I think if i just play around with it i can figure it out, and you were right i am having trouble just turning it into a file.

nancy, should i stick in a hermit crab for him? He loves those :)
