Mike Hellweg, a regular contributor to TFH and author of at least one aquarium book, has an article he wrote for AFI that's posted here
. He's got his head screwed on pretty darn well, so I would take what he says to heart.
According to Mike, they can enjoy broadly variable salinity. Also according to Mike, you'll need a source of live worms, either your own culture or a LFS that sells them. Live brine and daphnia are good too. Frozen they'll sometimes eat grudgingly, flake & pellet rarely.
