Ideally, no - epsecially since its a comet tail but considering he was a "prize" from winning a game at the county fair, he's got it much better then many of his fair buddies, assuming they are even still alive. Right now he is in a 10G.

My goal is to get something set up for him for next summer outside since the largest tank I can have inside is a 20G long

lol guys. It was/is -32c (-26f) here including windchill.

LBF, I did that with a fry (of course my male(?) F2 candidate) about a week ago. I just let him go into the bucket and netted him out. He survived but was pretty dazed for a while... And he's missing half a tail lobe. Needless to say I not cover the intake with a bbs net.

Well she has some nasty scrapes on her head but seems to be okay otherwise. She is swimming around and told the male to stop harassing her in no uncertain terms. I think she also ate a mosquito larvae I put in.

Usually my siphons are big enough all my fish can pass through. However, this tubing was small enough that her head could get in and then she was stuck fast.

Why is it that nearly every photo I take of my dog Nike she looks like she needs rescuing from some abusive owner?

She is nice and soft. Her coat has finally grown back in.

She is beautiful but her temperament is really not what it should be. Most of her day is spent rotating through the various rooms in our house because heaven forbid she go outside.

There must be something you can give her for her anxiety, LBF?

Speaking of coffeehouses, I just got back from my faculty of education semester end coffeehouse. It was a blast! They drew my name out of the hat to go sing a duet, heaven forbid. It was fun but on my way up to the stage I of course tripped. Pulled a Jennifer Lawrence I guess. Good laughs, I couldn't stop blushing though. All part of being a teacher! ^-^

Oh she's not anxious about going outside. She just doesn't like to. Unless we are digging a hole. Then she wants to be out there with you.

Haha it's always bad when you fall down in front of everyone. You kind of have to stand up with an "I'm okay" and then hobble off to go lick your wounds.
