oh, cool!

are they hard to keep?
Depends on your setup. They have to filter feed, so they do best in a fairly large, mature tank with good water flow where they can sit on the intake and catch debris as it goes by. You can also feed them directly with a long pipette using really small food like infusoria or really fine newborn fish foods.

Assuming you can keep them fed though, they are otherwise very hearty and extremely peaceful despite being relatively large.
