30 gallon high
Maybe for 1. If keeping 2 in a 30g, I would advise to keep them very well fed, even then there could be trouble.

Make sure it has finished cycling and is ready for a big/high biological load
Any tank that has just finished cycling will not be ready for a
big/high biological load
a deep sand bed will have some problems.
Myth. Def. not true.

Feeding hatchlings live mysids and amphipods can be costly and time consuming. They require quite a bit of small live foods as babies, and possibly for the first 2 mos.
If you decided to raise 5 from eggs for instance, you may go through 1000 mysid shrimp before you get them eating say...PE mysis then frozen krill. IME, neither of these foods really satisfies them completely.

I still encourage anyone with some reefing or sw experience to try them.

OB: help!

Loosely translated (high school French was a long time ago) I think charlystaff has Officinalis eggs available but if anyone is interested they may need help with the communications.
