:O poor little guy!! He's in good hands now, I bet he is loving the nice big heated tank :)

Guess what? I volunteer at a no kill shelter. A guy brought in his cat and her 4 kittens and said if we didnt take them, he would feed them to dogs. >:l

how ugly. give them to his dogs? and i thought i had to deal with jerks where i work.

wheni got home i turned the filter off, took the hood off he shot to the top and ate about 5 pellets. yes! i think hes going to be just fine.

my gf mentioned that he prolly wont eat with the filter on since it creates a current and moves the pellets around. she was right.

Yep. Irresponsible people + pets = disaster

We've had people bring in a dog and literally throw it into someone's arms and leave. A lady brought in a cat in a pillow case on Christmas eve. Another person abandoned two cats in the fenced in dog yard- the following morning a dog was let out and scared the crap out of those cats, they weren't hurt though.

Okay sorry to get a bit off topic there ;)

[quote=ehh;1135557]thanks, i like the white sand too. my gf talked me into it. i was thinking of going with black sand.

I have black sand in one tank and white in another. That black sand seems a little more depressing, but also, it looks like it is staining some of my white silicone fake sea anemones. I could be wrong, and maybe black sand that stains is bad.. . but I got it at Petco so it should be fish safe!

I am loving my white sand. It is a little uplifting, especially after I added a piece of mopani wood and a little blue-ocean-water background.

i was thinking the white sand would make the tank look brighter when i have the light on too.

YAY! I am -so- pleased he's doing well!

That tank is MUCH nicer than a toilet.

I cannot wait to see how he colours up when he's feeling more at home. He's quite lovely as it is.

Plants are a great idea.. wisteria is brilliant, get lots and float it. He'll sleep in it, probably. Mine all love the stuff and it's quite pretty, floating or planted.

I am currently using "Amazon Sword" the leaves are big, and comfy for your fishy to hide, and rest, or sleep on or in-between them, I love the look they add to the Aquarium too..Tropical!!
