Baby Moray eel #1
hiya guys

ive just rescued a baby moray from my lfs he was in a sorry state ( customer brought him back obviously tank was unsuitable or not cycled not sure ) so i said i would try and look after him , hes in my orca 450l atm with a baby cowfish and a clown fish .. the guy said it was a gold finned moray , after trying to google this i came up with nothing

he is jet black with a luminous green fin that starts from his head to the back of tail , after 3 days he has started to take frozen smelt from my fingers ..

i just need anyone who maybe knows anything about morays to try and identify him .

i know Orcas are in no way suitable for a moray but it will only stay untill he is fit and healty again ( fingers crossed ) he is a beutiful moray and i would love to no more about it

thanks guys

edit : he is about 6" in size

Re: starfish #3
The Red Starfish, or Red Sea Star, of the genus Fromia may be various shades of red. It has multiple black pores (dots) on its surface. The tips of the arms are the same or a lighter color than the rest of the arm, differentiating it from Fromia indica.

It generally lives alone, but if the aquarium is large enough to support more than one, it will tolerate others of its own species. It requires a mature tank with algae and is generally fairly self-sufficient in the aquarium, finding enough micro-organisms and detritus to scavenge if live rock is present. It is diurnal. It is intolerant of copper-based medications and high levels of nitrate, and is very sensitive to changes in specific gravity, temperature, salinity and pH of the water, and oxygen levels. Avoid exposing a Red Starfish to air or sudden salinity changes, as this is detrimental to its health, often resulting in bacterial infections and necrosis of an arm, or possible death.

The Red Starfish is extremely difficult to breed in an aquarium, with no distinguishing characteristics to help differentiate it from its mate.

If there is insufficient algae growth in the aquarium, the diet should be supplemented with flaked foods, and small pieces of fish or mussel.
