We had a group of these in at work. Unfortunately these don't breed well in captivity at all, and as they are so abundant in the wild, are almost always wild caught. Giving these their parasite treatment was quite difficult, as they are fast, easily stressed and have very, very delicate skin.
They didn't get on well together in a group but once separated did eat well and thrived, putting on weight and becoming a very attractive deep yellow in a fairly basic setup - so are quite easy to keep. As time passed, they didn't really get any more handleable though, always remaining very shy and reclusive (they are nocturnal anyway, so you won't see them in the day).
Overall I think these should be left in the wild, I see no advantage to keeping them as a pet over the many more suitable species.
