Thanks! I actually picked him up at PetCo of all places. They had a great selection and, despite the bad reputation, the employees were very knowledgeable; before I told them I had everything set up, they suggested a heater, a one-gallon tank minimum, and plenty of plants/hiding places. Very nice people!

Awesome that you found such a beauty at PetCo...and that you have a PetCo with good employees! :)

Here's a pic of my newly-set up 5 gallon divided. Norman is on the right, Walter the left. Sorry for my phone's crappy camera.

I've got a bunch of live plants ordered, so this setup will be completely different once those come in. I'm hoping the java fern and anubias I ordered will grow up and fill in the back to hide the plastic mesh (I wanted to keep fins out of the filter intake. Also, Walter decided he liked wedging himself between the heater and tank wall, so I blocked him from getting to it).

Finally going to post pictures of my boy's homes!

First, Howl's 1.5(?) gallon. He loves it in there, always has a nice bubble nest going.


And Haku's 10 gallon. He shares it with 4 neon tetra. There used to be 5 but one died...I should probably get a couple more. Sorry the picture is a little blurry :/

Your 10 gallon is beautiful! I love the placement of the rocks and driftwood. :)

Anubias won't get very big and grows so slow. I would recommend wisteria as it grows very fast with added fertilizers.
