Tip of the Day – 1/7/2015


Want to target feed those aggressively hungry brittle stars? Try sinking pellets. Brittle stars are phenomenal members of the clean-up crew, as they consume pretty much everything that the fish don’t get to. Due to their voracious appetite, they also benefit significantly from target feeding, but again, the fish are always an issue because they are faster and more mobile than the stars. To get food down to the hungry stars before the fish have the opportunity to swipe it, the pellets are a really good choice, especially if you can roll up several of them into a much larger food ball. The food ball will sink very quickly, won’t get eaten by fish, and is a great choice for the stars thanks to their elastic stomachs.
