I got him. It was pretty easy set up a ten gallon tank and flushed his hole with fresh water. He did not stay put long dropped right out and is swiming around now. what should i feed him he is only an inch long and very dark in color. how fast do they grow? I am thinking of setting up a refugium with plants and soil for my 55 gallon, do you think he would be happy in a setup like that. He was in the live rock that came from aquarium art in bakersfield calif. What water conditions do they preffer?
