I don't think I'd want him to be that "cool" for that long.

I know a guy who got hit. He said it felt like an electric shock, but not too bad. I think their power is exaggerated.

For the record, I'm jealous.

As for keeping him, I wouldn't worry about him breaking the glass. Just don't go out of your way to piss him off and you'll be fine. Since he's just a little guy a shallow sand bed should be just fine for now.

lol so a no on the acid???

on a serious note, you could try catching him with an icecream container just put some meaty food in it, cut a hole on the top of the lid and put it next to where it lives, then over time itll hopefully jump in the container to get the food and cant get out

Well i thought about all the pros and cons of keeping him and here they are-
Pros-
Getting to look at an awesome invertarbrate.
Feeding would be amazing
Setting up another tank

And the cons-
The chance of it getting provoked and breaking the glass
Breaking through the divider while in the 20 and then killing everything
The work in setting up a new tank
The special food need for feeding
Risking getting a finger or two broken

So after thinking about it for 2 days i decided not to keep him, i traded him to the lfs for a piece of rock as i couldnt get him out of him former rock. They acclimated him and he is in the fuge of one of the 40b they have. Thanks for all the help!
