Sometimes you'll need live food for your tank. If you have Lionfish or even larger seahorses, contact your LFS (local fish store) to see if they sell Ghost Shrimp. These need to be kept in fresh water with an airstone, and then added to the display tank when it is time to feed. They will live for a brief period in saltwater, long enough for hungry fish to hunt them down.
