    I have been feeding it bits of chopped prawn and mussel, and sometimes lobster eggs. More or less every couple of weeks or so .

    The cool thing is I never bought it ! It came attached to a piece of rock from LFS. Was about the size of a small coin when it came in, could hardly notice it against the purple rock.
