Isee your point.. of course I know all that hings, they spend most time hiding, the oter ones and the protective mom..

but what I was tring to say is that a 7 ft long enclosure is not that big, compared with the space they have in nature...

dont have all the experience you guys have, but think that the main reason this little guys get stressed isnt the sice of the tank, but all of us around them... big strange animals that come from above moving the water, ther rocks.. coming in and out of thir view.. taking out the sky (enclosure cover), sudenly turning on and off the ligth...

in my experience with palps (not that much BTW), in the begining they wont eat when been observed... but if you let them alone for some time most of them will eat... I use live fish to triger the feeding response, and later feed crickets, or prepared food..

cheers

Rick
