After you acclimate it (I would be using the drip method) how can you transfer him to the tank with out him touching air and not letting the fish store water get in your tank? I heard grabbing them in nets is a horrible idea and I guess air would also be hitting him or her.
I feed him krill every 2 weeks, i use tetra jumbo krill. Then i feed him 1/4 a block of emerald entree, brine shrimp, or LRS (the local food mix of a bunch of different fish and stuff, best frozen in the east cost. Runs about 20$ for 16oz bag) that also feeds my other 4 fish in his 37g home.
If you have other fish that eat krill than maybe 2-3 times a week. Ether get tongs or hand feed them to make sure it doesnt get caught in the rocks and rot.
TBH when i got him i was a noob so i picked him up in my hand and put him in the tank, but hes healthy and happy so i guess i was lucky.
You can get a plastic container and then scoop him up, then poor as much of the LFS
store water down the drain, then just stick him in the tank with the minimal amount of LFS
water into the tank.
