It should be kept in a well-established, 30-gallon or larger aquarium with plenty of live rock, live sand, and hiding places. It is moderately hardy in mature reef aquariums if given special care. It is not overly aggressive towards other fish, except for conspecifics.
It feeds on a variety of vitamin-enriched live brine shrimp, live black worms, and natural prey on tiny crustaceans found in live rock and live sand.
