This is Horatio in his bowl. The silk plants don't really take up very much room, but the distortion in that photo makes it look like his whole bowl is plants.
I took him out today to do a 100% water change (I've been doing 50% just about every day the last month) and I had to scoop him out with a little 4 ounce cup. He was, as you can all guess, not so thrilled with the glass. I had to rest a piece of paper over the top so that he didn't jump out.
And then I noticed that the little glass he was in made a neat effect, so I grabbed my camera. He was even less happy about that. I think his fishy brain was going, "OK, Paparazzi, more water change action!!"
I've decided that he's a tail biter (you can see his ragged tail above), so I've been trying to figure out what causes it. The biorb, cool as it looks, is probably soon being replaced by a 6 gallon marineland eclipse so that he will have more space to relax. Hopefully that will help.
