I think that's why he's so eager to swim in because he's thinking FOODFOODFOOD

Hmm... Freedy's such a skittish fish, I always was afraid to freak him out by putting my hands in the tank... but perhaps I should give it a shot, after reading about everyone's successes. :)

Robert Falcon Scott - Red salamander HM plakat
Passed on- Friedrich "Freedy"

OTHER CRITTERS:
Four African Dwarf Frogs - Dorkus, Sporkus, Baron(ess), and Bubbles!

@1f2f, Yeah, actually I think I saw a dog that looked like her! LOL I bet that's hilarious to see when she does that
@FuulieQ, you probably could do it, the trick is just take it slow, and if he seems like he's freaking out to much stop and leave him alone. Chance was skittish as well, but I've worked with him since February and he's gotten a lot better. Just watch him carefully and if it seems like it's too much, back off for a while.
