I accidentally took this one picture with flash



Another on the first day in the bowl, bright outside.



If either of these will help you figure that out.

His scales are blue/turquoise, with red gap between them.

Nope not dragon.

Yea, He's not, just the lighting in that one picture threw me off. :p
Bubblenest! It's where he'd put his babies if he bred. :)

I thought that was what it was. As long as changing the tank water won't make him too upset to not have those there. Day three and he's already bubbling his bowl... I tell ya.


The 10 Gallon is filled and about 23 hours to go until it should be ready. I used 2 1 gallon jugs of house water, because it didn't look too terrible at first (I was hoping I lucked out and some bought salt), which I feel I will regret. In fact, it left rust lines on the sides of the bowl. Used jugs of Poland the rest of the way though.

I'll see how well the filter takes care of it before I decide if I'm going to pull out water and replace with better to offset the house water.

Yeah, I'm not sure if Roy will give up or not. That is kinda funny that he gave up though.



I've had the 10 gallon running for two days as of now. The water was looking good, and the two decorations I ordered came in, so it is all together.

However, this tank is looking too bland with the white sand, mud hut, and anemone decor. Gotta get some black gravel now and I'm thinking a moss, but I just don't know where from just yet.

Roy has been too busy floating to really enjoy the hut and anemone.

He is going to get a buddy eventually. I'll have to read around a bit and see what, aside from something that will clean the tank, I'd like to have keep him company.
