Also, what's the main difference between the yumas and floridas?

yumas have little bumps(tenticles) on the mouth

Thanks SAPseven. That's simple enough.

for 5 bucks thats a deal! with the right diet and care it could be beautiful.

Other than the correct lighting and water parameters, what should I be feeding them? I thought they pulled nutrients from the water and the occasional brine or mysis that I feed the fish.

Although most varieties of yumas have tentacles surrounding the mouth, there are some that have very short tentacles on the body and none surrounding the mouth.

mysis and zooplankton would make it smile. use an eyedropper and slowely push it out on top of it, if u can get it to sit on the mush it willc close up around it and be happy :] Maybe once a week. I wouldnt feed brine
