I think in the wild they are usually most abundant adjacent to sewer outfalls, in contaminated sediment, not sure I'd want to get too involved in that. Either way I reckon you'd need heavy organic feed. As a kid I used to buy it from LFS and had to trickle feed fresh water over it. If not it would go foul and rot.
