I haven't, but I think they are hard to care for.

I have one, I'm actually holding it for my sister until she gets her tank going. It's in an acrylic flat back hex tank, 26g. It seems fairly easy, I've heard that the don't like high lighting, the one I have does stay out of the light, it stays in a far corner of the tank, I thought he was stuck there, but I moved it and it went right back. It seems to be doing well.

I have one. Had it for a month, so far so good. Do target feedings every other day with a dropper and switch between microvore and marine snow. It stays in the corner of the tank.

I had one years ago and it was hard to raise. IMO best left in the ocean. It did not last long.

Same here, had one. Lasted only a couple months, even though I fed live Phyto, target fed. :-(
