    For anyone wondering they have to eat every other day they have to use there punchers at least once a week or when the mult they will not come back so that is why he gets a crab once a week and silver sides every other day. They are not scary as people think they are they are very intelligent they will get two no you. I hand feed him silverside he touches me and never has punched me. If you have any questions let me know I Will gladly answer them.

    I didn't know it was a "use it or lose it" situation with their clubs. That's really interesting. How large is it? Do you know if you have a male or female?

    The coloration on him is amazing. Does it greet you at all or is it fairly cryptic?

    In a way I do think he greets me every time he sees me he pops out of den and looks at me he is very interested in cats as they also are in him. I’ll have to take picture but they will look straight at each other cat will follow him around tank. I have a older picture from when I first got him where you can see all his color on his whole body.
