Comments: A very colorful and easy to keep saltwater lobster. Salinity should be 1.023-1.025, and iodine may be required to allow proper molting to occur. May eat smaller or slower fishes if not fed well. A tank with lots of live rock for hiding is essential as the lobsters mainly come out at night but can be trained into coming out in the day for food.
