Navanax Inermis eating snail ca-bobs in my 8 gallon tank!

Post by AquaticEngineer on June 8th 2013, 2:44 am

So my Navanax laid eggs today and I thought it might be hungry, and I was fresh out of Hermissenda crassicornis wouldn't you know?

Pretty much everyone knows that the Navanax inermis feeds on other sea slugs like the opalescent nudibranch, and some may know that they feed readily on bubble shell snails and such.

Mine has thankfully developed a taste for freshley shuck common periwinkles, of which I keep in abundance as a feeder snail for other animals already

Just thought it was awesome to watch him literally in-hail a chunk of food right in front of me. I was so surprised that he actually took it that I wasnt even ready with my camera and had to catch him finishing his meal on video.

I decided to try and feed him again, this time with a shucked turban snail, below is the video of what happened Happy Dance

Action is at 1:40 or so.

I would much rather be feeding in H.Crassicornis just so I could watch them all the time, but its much easier to keep anemones in the tank without them Wink and snails are cheaper to come by, lol.
