Back after being gone toooo long!!
I was on here probably close to 2 years ago... looking for info and answers! And I am SO appreciative of all the help I got!
Everything has been going well with Harold (icon photo) except for fin chewing, so I moved him out of the 10g hex to a small, probably 2.5g (?) hex. I finally guessed it was the filter flow too strong. But now I found out about the water bottle trick!
SO I've had this 10g hex empty, except for 2 otocinclus, for a VERY long time. Been admiring fish online, but too scared to try shipping. An opportunity came up a few weeks ago, so I tried... but he didn't make it and now I am trying to go thru this claims process with USPS.
I always just look thru the fish at the local big stores when I have to get something. I've been able to say no with no problems... until yesterday.
I have always admired the koi colored ones and he reminded me of that. Plus he was clean, active... and just really caught my eye.
He doesn't have a name yet... going to let my guy name him! Being a HUGE horror movie fan, esp weird, foreign, etc ones... I can about imagine what he's gonna come up with. (A friend posted a gif from the movie Carrie when I posted a photo of him online... LOL)
Next step is to get a new light for the tank (the old one died) and snails, for both tanks. And I guess he is a dragonscale so need to read up on those... off to search the forums for more info!!
