I got The Agent some shrimp and clams. They are huge for him. I took some shots of him eating the shrimp. 8)


Watch as his eyespot changes color:






And a shot of one of the clams:

Hes not tiny! You just have nothing to base it against. That's not a ghost shrimp! It's 4 inches long! And the clam is an inch and a half! :biggrin2:


Oh and the clams are manila clams and the shrimp I think is a canal shrimp. :)

Look here for some stuff.

Where are you getting that stuff up there? Online or at one of the Asian Farmers Markets?

The biggest LIVE shrimp I got Ochi to eat so far was only about 1 1/2", he will not mess with the bigger ones yet. Did The Agent eat all of the 4"?

I didnt get it online. Atlanta is so diverse. 8)


He's been eating parts of it. He ate the head and some of the tail. The clam is open alittle and looks like a bit is missing. :)

Good to hear 8) is chomping down, I am just personally scared to leave a larger carcass in my tank long enough for him to finish it.

Yeah I took it out yesterday. Oh and I forgot to tell yall but when I got the shrimp and clams I also saw a snail and thought Id give him that too. He pounced on that bad boy like the fat kid on cake!

And guess what? I got ALOT more of the snails! Probably 40 or so. Cost me $3.35 8).
