local catch, beginning of seine net season

Captured a little 1 inch sea robin, and boy is he cool. Took about 4 days for him to eat pellets. I didn't know he can change colors. I had him over gravel, but he seems to have problems with food he cant see. He's use to food being kicked up by his feet, then as it swims away, he eats it. Since the pellets don't move, I had to move him over bare bottom.

cute 2 inch burrfish and a 3inch look down, Caught them at Oak Beach today, the burrfish should adapt easily to pellets, the look down looks challenging. Hope I can do it.
