He's very pretty :)
Watch out for that rock hide. I thought they were a nice idea and picked one up at the store once and all the way around the opening and the inside was very rough.

i was thinking about that and i've been looking for a more smooth hide, but since he's had it its been good to him....if i notice any tears in his fins or anything i'll change it

Swim long and prosper!

Hello and welcome to you and Apollo

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'm a NewYorker too! (now on the Island!) Welcome! And I agree with Lizbeth. I always feel the insides of my decor for roughness. Keep an eye on that cutie.
