    yeah, i like the fact that hes low maintenance. he only needs to be fed once or twice a week.

    to answer your question, diane (i'll answer based on what i've done with the pacman's i used to own) i feed live goldfish or rosie guppies - stick them to the glass and their movement attracts his attention. with the ones that grew larger, i eventually fed them pinkie mice - once they reach about 3-4 inches. their mouth is HUGE in proportion to their body, and they will eat anything that fits in it, hence the moniker.

    If it ever gets that big, you better hope it never see food climbing on your plants, otherwise half the plant will get eaten along with the food item. Haha.
    But they are cute when they start out, I like the way you put it, quarter sized munchkins.
