Had them. They all died slowly over a period of 6 months. Trained them to eat and they were aggressive eating too. Would gobble up whole PE mysis and everything I fed. I feed 3-5x a day too so I don't think they were not getting enough food.

One by one they stopped eating and died. Its a shame.

Feed baby brine shrimp every half an hour. There is a good article from Matthew Wandell how he keep purple queen for long time.

Where did you guys get your tuka? I found local stores were selling anthias pascalus rather than tuka.
