thanks! he's gotten even brighter in color recently. I moved him up to a bigger critter keeper cage (had in a gallon qt tank) and he loves it. He's got a cave and plants and even a moss ball. He was so happy he made me a bubble nest, but it got destroyed in a water change. He is super alert and attentive. I think he's starting to chunk out a bit too, I did a few days where I fed him mosquito larva (all of my fish got a few days of nummy nummy food). I should go take more pictures lol.
