Saw one of these in the LFS today and loved it.  I know I can't have one yet as it needs an established tank and experience reefer but has anyone got one?  Do they take a lot of care?  Definitely on my wish list for the future.

Hi I got one of these a few months ago, it has popped itself inside the internal protein skimmer. From my research on these they are stated as 'expert'  only but as I have had success with Oysters & mussels I thought I would give it a whirl. I spot feed mine phytoplankton and have a good colonisation of copepods & rotifers within my system. I'm going to get a couple more if it makes it to the 6 month mark, so will keep you posted.

Both still going well at this point. Happiest when they are tucked up inside the live rock.

Lovely, well done! How did you get it out of the internal skimmer?!

Removed the bottom section and poked him down from the top, he swam over to the rockwork and has happily stayed there since.
