Definitely subscribing, that is an awesome looking fish!
What do you usually feed him? Do you know if it is possible to get them to eat frozen or freeze-dried foods?I have a baby whale.... I have him temporarily in a 10g till he can go back into the 55g. Very shy fish. I only see him at feeding time and night since they are nocturnal. I didn't want to have to do the whole feeding at night too so he's gotten used to coming out in the light. Once he's done feeding he goes back and hides. I do have to say though I love this fish. It is hard to find information.
Do you think that they must be refrigerated? Several websites that I've found said that refrigeration does nothing but slow their metabolism.I buy a lot when I go to the store and can keep them for months in the fridge as long as I change the water every few days. Also after a while im sure you could train the fish to accept frozen bloodworms instead of live blackworms. Thats what I was able to do with my scarlet badi and dwarf puffer (both fish generally are said to only eat live food)
