Never again!

i am from this day onward never allowed to enter a pet store UNSUPERVISED by another responsible adult.
todays little addition:
introducing spongebob fishpants

:) i picked him out a few days back and was determined to buy myself a yellow male to call sponge bob and he was there when i went back so i bought him. much to my partners dislike.












he is living in a critter keeper as is Nero until TONIGHT till my new tanks home. i have two tail biters in QT so they will prob be switched to critter keepers then the lil louie will also join dastan nero and spongebob into the 8 bay tank :)

NOTE: his tank is sitting in front of my planted tank to get the lighting right for my camera any flaring is to the other male

HAHAHA!! Spongebob Fishpants! I can't stop laughing! I love it. He's such a pretty boy, too. Is his body pinkish or yellow, or it depends on the light? I totally know what you mean about walking into fish stores unsupervised. Fish happen!

He is a dream fish! I would have to buy him immediately if I saw him. I would just have to deal with my husband later! Excellent choice!!

My first, Pearl was the colors of fishpants there. Miss her a lot.

She actually knocked the bubble lift pipe in a 1g over and got herself stuck headfirst against the airstone, dutifully grabbing air off it for probably 3 hours letting the water flow backwards over he gills.

I used two-part superglue so it wouldn't come out again but got her into a series 3 Eclipse 3gal by the end of the week.

I miss that blue ray pattern on yellow.
