    Keep your parameters stable and nitrates less than 5-10 ppm. If you feed it, small bits of food are easier to digest for them. I feed mine a small bit of mysis every week or so. As long as your lighting is sufficient, and your parameters are stable, it should do great!

    Could be. I recently nursed what I thought was a fuzzy mushroom baby until it got bigger and I realized it was a majano. It was pretty too. :(
