Thanks, My wife really misses them a lot. We had 2 also, one big and one small. The small one is the one that died, I would guess his main body size was 1/2". I feed them seaweed ( Nori) on a rock, and they love it. They are a lot of fun to watch pick around, and climb all over the rock, especially late in the evening. I would assume my wife will have a couple in her Aquapod once she gets water in it. Just got the OK from a trusted neighbor to put the 24 gal
in our bedroom bay window( weight support issue). North facing, shaded window so no dirrect sunlight problem.
