I too am quite impressed you walked away! (Casually glances over at two divided 10g tanks and a temporary 5g goldfish tank that she was never supposed to have) I have found "the one" only four times before with my fishies- first was my Pigg, who I found early last June. I went home and told my mother I was getting a fish- I would use the small 1g that came with the frogs before I got the 5g (the 5g was gone and now back). The other time was with my boy Atlas, I said basically the same thing. Third was with Themis, when I was actually looking for new tankmates. And lastly was Hannibal, my Goldfish, who is being rehomed to a big tank with two new friends this weekend! The only one I wasn't sure about was my little Artemis- I was basically looking for an extra spot to fill and she seemed the smallest and least likely to survive.
Sorry about my droning. I have that issue (politician's daughter). So basically, get him and love him and have a great time!!
