Uh, where do I start? First of all, he's Waaaay overstocked. He should have 20 gallons for the first head, and an another 10 for each additional head. Please don't keep Zombie heads unless you can provide them a good home!!!!! And those species of heads that he has together in those tanks are totally incompatible. This kind of thing makes me soooo mad.

They're not even heated and filtered! I bet those tanks aren't cycled either. All of those heads will die again from ammonia poisoning. And then they'll come back and die of nitrite poisoning.

Not only is that way too many in too small of a tank, but this species is known for being especially shy, so they need lots of hiding places. Poor heads, they almost look alive. 😕

I am going to say bravo to him for going out of the box and trying something that everyone believes cant or shouldnt be done and obviously being very successful with it.

We need pioneers in the hobby like this man.

Does anyone know the temp of the tanks? How about food? Maybe beef heart?

Has he done any breeding?

I've read that they prefer human brains, but beef heart is a good substitute because they are difficult to get.
