I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Yes. One is not recommended. A 28 gallons is a breeding tank or grow-out tank for them rather than a permanent home.:)

Thanks for all the comments! They are getting more brave and swimming around like they own the place now. Hopefully I can get them to eat something soon! Any tips?

Have you tried feeding them anything at all yet? If not, then perhaps you could try a small amount of bloodworm?

I tried to feed them some beef heart but when I go to lift the canopy they start to hide. I will try again when I get home.
