You cant, the animal was found in the shallows and appeared to be sick. It died after a couple of hours.

i think that the bloating of the gills is a response to the obvious problems with pressure regulation. Like any deep water fish pulled up, gas expansion. I'm sure it was in a world of hurt, and i'm not so sure it would swim anything like that in its native habitat.

Cool looking though!

FYI in about 2 years i hear that Birch aquarium here in California is planning on having a "Creatures of the deep" exhibit, complete with pressurized tanks. Sounds like a logistics nightmare due to lighting/pressure and everything. Looking forward to it!
