oh and for acclimation.. i did the standard drip for 30 min then placed the bag into the tank and waited for him to come out. i had to go to class and i came back and it had turned the bag into a den and had already caught the largest hermit in the tank and brought it back to the bag... a few minutes ago i spotted it crawling around the back corner so i offered shrimp on a stick and no lie the thing already is eating off the feeding stick! i love this guy! so easy to please!
