Thanks Pete,
Once again you are exactly right. I couldnt believe my eyes. I went to the LFS tonight, I specifically asked if they had fed the dwarf frogfish today? When they answered no, I begged them to let me purchase a 2-3 inch feeder fish. The largest they had was approx. 1 1/2 inches about the same size as the angler. I carefully watched (morbid maybe, but safety first) to see if I could get an idea of just how large a gulp this guy could swallow. To my amazement I was standing there as the fish hit the water, the frogfish began laying down on his side acting as a leaf on the bottom of the tank, you could see his eyes carefully but skillfully watching the innocent feeder. I thought this may take a while he is waiting for dinner to come to him. NOT>>> This guy soared to the top of the tank, how big his mouth was? I have no idea I missed it. The feeder was gone, and I didnt see a thing. Never would I put this little guy in the tank. I cant believe I was told it would be possible. I am, now even more fascinated with him and after I finish my new horse tank, I may have to convert one of the holding tanks to a dwarf angler residence. I guess we can place him at the top of the incompatible list for seahorses. No seahorses were harmed during this experiment.
