From what I've read temp and lighting needs to be addressed.. and most important the fish needs to be brought up from that depth in stages over a matter of days or it will die from the pressure change and nitrogen build up in the blood

Yes, if done properly. Its a form of acclimation just like we do for temp and ph, except these creatures need pressure acclimation as well.

As stated temp and lighting are gonna be the only major differences.


Not sure how you plan to get this fish tho unless you plan on paying an arm and a leg.

Lol never in my life would i pay anything close to 1g for any fish. Too many many things can happen that kill that 1g in a day. Cool factor is awesome. But i would not recommend this to anyone who is not a fully experienced in saltwater aquaria, and sharks for that matter.

Just tryin to save ya some money
