what nem is it?

most will take lance fish , available from most lfs, frozen.

nems need a lot of research, which is best done before you buy them. actually this applies to all livestock really.

yeh looks like its the common beadlet. not really suited to a tropical reef tank. from what i know they can bread quite a lot and become a pest.

imo it should go back to your local sea shore
