It is surprising how much poo this guy puts out in my tank!
They are only difficult to keep because people don't go out of their way to feed them. I am already dosing my tank with large amounts of live phyto plankton so adding another filter feeder isn't a big deal. Although, I will add that they do die of old age fairly rapidly and by the time most people get them there is usually about 6 months - 1 year left in them. But for a $8 investment it's worth it to me.
