I have a 10-gal. tank with 6 F. pulvereus, the first time I've ever kept
them. They're fun fish to watch, very active, and they'll eat almost
anything that's offered to them. I collected mine in a tidal creek at the
mouth of Mobile Bay that was 11 ppt salinity, and I've kept them at that
level. The F. similis are much larger, and seem to be harder to keep
although not impossible.
