Just wanted to pass on some information about the lifespan of the Velvet Blue Damsel. This description said their life span in the wild is likely about 6 years and typically 15 years in captivity. Just wanted to pass on that mine is 20 years old and close to turning 21. I put him in my reef tank 20 years ago to cycle it and he is still alive and well...he is very aggressive and belligerent as you indicated in the description.

I live in Santa Barbara where we have lots of Leopards in the water. Water temps only hit around 70.f for at most a few weeks, if at all. These sharks would do much better with your tank set around 60.f. During the winter water temps are in the low 50's. That's not cool to "cook" the shark at 70f.

Thats like saying you will live comfortably in 100.f.

You can put any bottom feededers in there with the 400 gallon. Not any mid to top swimmers.

Last month I lurched 3 to cycle my tank. They lived peacefully for around 4 days then the smallest and another one pecked a hole in the biggest one. Then once he was dead the smallest started going after the other one. So I gave it to my uncle and now am left with the mean killer one.

I need help! Today when I was getting prepared to feed my snowflake eel I caught him attempting to eat my clownfish. I stopped him. WHAT Should I Do?!?! I don't want to get rid of him but I don't want him to kill my pregnant clown.

    Take your clown out and put him in quarantine. I had a snowflake for awhile and if he tried to eat something in the tank sooner than later it would be dead. After him killing 10+ fish I bought a second snowflake eel, they were both around 16 inches long and my first eel ate my second. The water got contaminated with chunks of eel, I couldn't get it all cleaned out and my first eel died from the poisoned water.

Surgeon fish are the only fishes with the shortest tail. Maybe one day they can become bigger and live better life.
