Hello and congrats on your first Loggerhead! Everything sounds good with your tank...temp, size, etc. Alligator Snapper hatchlings will only take live stuff in the beginning, like small fish and insect larvae. But if you're patient (it may take a while), it will start to take a variety of other carnivorous types of foods, possibly even pellets. Just be mentally prepared that this process of taking other foods could take weeks or months. FYI, Loggerheads don't bask. But it certainly doesn't hurt it to have a herp bulb. Also, they usually stop eating when the water temp drops below 70 degrees. They're an easy species to take care of. And they grow very slowly. Good luck! --Maxx
