Relevant Information:

Aquarium Care: Would need a large tank and hiding places when introduced to your tank as they will take a time to settle and get used to their surroundings. Tank lights should not be too bright and a dark substrate would be a good idea also. Diet: They do prefer live foods such as earth worms and shrimp but can be weaned on to frozen, pellet and tablet foods.
