Lobsters

Saltwater Lobsters make interesting aquarium pets feeding well on a variety of frozen foods. Found in every ocean, ocean lobsters inhabit the sandy bottom or the crevasses of rocky formations. Generally these animals are nocturnal, feeding at night. Utilize meat of marine origin, including (but not limited to) fresh market fish, scallops, clams, oysters, shrimp, krill, and squid. Some vegetable matter is necessary, such as spirulina, nori (dried seaweed), fresh algae(s), and even dry fare such as sinking wafers or pellets.
