I have one and it looks nice.
It eats silver sides
It is close to the top, under my 250watt HM bulb with its foot deep in the rock.

Mine has been stationary for 3 months. Very very hardy under good condtions.

I have lots of light (2x175mh and 2x65PC), and pretty good water, although nitrates have historically been 10-20ppm.

I got my purple condy for basically free at the LFS because 2/3'rds of his tentacles were ripped off. It was a "project".

Within a month, the tentacles were all grown back, and since then he's tripled in size.

Lots of my fish will swim through its tentacles (quickly) with no apparent harm. I've touched it many times without feeling any sting.

I just got one myself and like him very much. He has been stationary since I got him a week ago (after finding the piece of rock he wanted to sit on.) The silly person at th e LFS was selling them from the same tank as the clowns, giving the impression they were good hosts.

I was told to feed him brine shrimp and blood worms - my question is how often and is this the correct food for them.

Check out those two links I posted earlier and they will tell you what to feed.

Thanks Melosu58, I read that they eat "meaty foods" but I could not find where they specify how often.

I have said critter and like the new addition. I was told to feed him slowly with the turkey baster about 2-3 times per week. I feed the frozen cubes every other day and will do him every 3-4 days. He has drifted. I have kept a close eye on him until he 'lands' somewhere he likes and then may need to rearrange the other softies so they won't be within the line of fire of his tenticles.
Thanks for the info.

Some people just feed them chunks of uncooked shrimp... I feed the rest of my fish frozen Mysis Shrimp.... I usually just break off a chunk before it breaks up and throw it near it, it will grab onto it.

These are very hardy animals...
