Keep this animal well fed to help and avoid predatory behaviour.

This spectacular creature is also known as the Painted Lobster. Alternating bands of deep sapphire and white cover every part of its body, except its long antennae which are pure white. It may hide under rocks for much of the day but will emerge at night time or when hungry. Its long antennae are nearly always visible. It is an opportunistic omnivore and will take any food available, possibly threatening sleeping fish, snails, crabs, urchins and anything else it can catch. If well fed the lobster's predatory nature is more subdued. It is easy to keep, may grow up to 12 inches and needs an aquarium at least 100 gallons.
