i strongly suggest not getting one. these fish are very similiar to keeping seahorses which require alot of work. please at the very least do more research.

care to share more about your setup?

Get a bigger tank, more live rock and then get one. They can be tough little buggers to feed but with plenty of LR they'll find their own food.
