they do not require any lighting, they are filter feeds and retrieve all their food from the water column so they would need a good flow but not much interms of lighting.

they should be very easy to maintain as long as you have food for them to eat

also when you are choosing your fish/inverts make sure you dont get anything that may pick at them. I have lots of small ones that came on my live rock, one of my hermits added a small one to his shell too (its pretty cute looking).

you dont relly have to feed them. they find all the food they need from the water and just feeding the fish in the tank. i dont feed mine any more becasue he got really big really fast when i did. but they love dt so if you want to feed them give them that.
