Re:Dragon Sea Moth?



I’ve had a pair (2 of them but not completely sure if they are male/female combo) for over 1 year now and they have been doing great but I do have a large 130G well stablished Reef System. I got them as juveniles and they have grown quite a bit.

A few things to consider:

-A large (minimum 90G tank) with emphazis on lenght and not height since they are bottom dweller swimmers.

-A refugium

-A well stablished reef tank

They are not that hard to feed, but keep in mind that I’m saying this because I have seahorses that needed to be trained to feed on a frozen diet and my Sea Moths were no different. It took me about 1 month when I first got them to teach them to eat frozen food, so you need to have the ability to provide with live food until they switch over. Now they love frozen mysis shrimp, cyclops and Zooplankton. I also have a well stablished colony of Amphipods in my refugium and they also forage on these. I feed them using a pipete but I have witnessed them going higher on the rocks to feed on Amphipods. They are wonderful creatures and mine have quite the personality always wondering around the aquarium and stoping by to check me out when I’m looking at the tank.

They have been a wonderful addition to my reef aquarium and eventhough they did not seem so difficult to feed in my case, they do require special attention to their feeding needs.

Hope this helped :p
