They are super sensitive, need schools, and don't adapt to captivity.

They tend to waste away even when eating. Not a fish is even think about attempting unless I had a huge tank (3-400 gallons+) that was a couple years old with very mature live rock that had a huge diversity of life on it. They need to eat sponge. Just one of those fish you shouldn't buy.
