Thanks for the article. I had actually stumbled on that one myself. If they order me one, I will pick it up when it comes in. I'm not going to be able to see it eat. I would have to count on him eating off the live copepods in my tank. Ideally, perhaps one day he'd eat prepared foods, but the plan is for it to eat what I have in my tank. I was taking rock out yesterday, glueing some frags, and did see a mysis shrimp in the bucket, so I know now they are not just in my sump but in the tank, which is cool!
I'm going to California in 2 weeks for a long weekend. I'm going to likely order one, (wild caught, for $23), but will wait till I get back. I'll let you know how it does. I bet the lfs I would get the captive bred one from, orders it from FL, since it sounds like they are breeding them. I hate to be cheap, but I really don't want to spend $75-80 for one. Wild caught are probably heartier.
Online purchases are nice if you can go in with a couple other people, because shipping is more than the fish!
