These pics were taking before I got him, I'll post new pics as soon as he's acclimated and in the tank.

Still alive, still eating, just hiding in a little rock cave so I never get to see him Sad

After this weekend when we are done filming the 4-6 hours of HD video for the DVD I am going to rearrange the tanks into a Deepwater biotope, and a tidal biotope tank until I get the main tank finished.

That's a cool fish. Maybe if he got a buddy he wouldn't feel the need to hide? Or are they solitary?

They are the coldwater equivalent of a Jawfish. They prefer to have a nice solid shell or borrow to back themselves into.

Both tanks are getting re-organized soon to make room for a lot of new livestock Cool

Ughh I wish he did. He pretty much just hides all the time. I have to look for him with a flashlight just to find him. I'm going to design a tank for inside my house that he can live in that wont have as many places to hide.

That's so neat. I wish I had one. Is it a voracious predator?

You did just move him to a new tank. I would give it a while and let him familiarize himself with the tank. Maybe then he'll be more of an explorer. Wink

Surprisinly not, I'm sure he takes down what ever gets in his way, but I have never seen him actively hunt. He prefers to get the free shrimp and nori I put in front of him I think.

True, but even in the 110 gallon he was in before this all he did was hide. I think he's found himself nice burrow though, I'm going to try and make it a little more viewable.

Do the species normally actively hunt?
