How easy are they to care for?
Should be kept in well-established, large tanks only. Ideally tanks that have an established copepod/small invert colony.
How large can they grow?
Where in the world are they from?
What is the ideal number to keep together?
Depending on the tank size multiple individuals can be kept, they should be kept as 2-3 females per male.
What water conditions do they require?
SG: 1.020-1.025, pH: 8.1-8.4
23-27 deg C (73-81 deg F)
What should you feed them?
Will accept frozen foods such as mysis and brine. However they will depend heavily on micro live inverts in the tank for their main food source.
