The key word when it comes to the husbandry of Charina would be patience. These cryptic critters do things at their own pace, and you will soon notice this when it comes to feeding, surface activity, etc.

From personal expierence, one of the hardest thigns to overcome is getting a wc boa to eat domesticated mice pinks. It will take time and some different tricks, but it is rewarding at the end. Washed, brained pinks seem to work well when placed with the boa is a dark container.
