thank you =) he loves having a full tummy that's for sure.

I bought myself a new light for his tank but he's a bit confused on why the lighting changed. He was hiding until I shut it off for the night. It might have spooked him when I tested it out though. His light was off at the time. Oops.

@Tree Awwwww...poor boy must've gotten "stage fright" with that bright light shining on him! X'D
He'll get used to it in time, of course...but it may take gradually leaving the light on for longer and longer periods everyday for awhile. X'D

GOOD NEWS! Bien started eating small snails! She's shy for me to watch her so I couldn't get a photo of her eating but saw her pick at them and ate one. So happy! as long as they are small enough for her to kill she will eat them. no more bloodworms every day now. =D Strangely she will not eat any kelp or shrimp though. Oh well. lol

Copter is slowly growing more and more! I was thinking about adding Bumblebee Gobies into his buuuut I'm sure he would kill them... Then again, there is one cherry shrimp that is still alive due to it being so stealthy and fast. LOL but I'm not a fan of a community tank due to a parasite breakout. but I would love to add at least some gobies for the left over food he leaves behind. =/ I'll think about it later down the line...

so enjoy these photos while I ponder! LOL

Almost broke and bought a cute little GSP today, but don't have the tanks and wouldn't be able to handle the brackish water changes. Cute little things, though.

The Males~
Lucifer, Gabriel, Titan, King, Finnegan, Fin-again & Ricky.
Lucifer & Gabriel are my only non-rescues...

The Females~

I just got some pea puffers after not having kept them in like 10 years! I never got to know them because mine died after like a day. I did not know how to care for them at the time.

I always assumed that no matter how aggressive they get, they cannot be taken seriously because if their size and you would just laugh like you would at a kitten. Well, no that is not true. They are terrifying hunters.

20 gallon tall-betta sorority/community
3 gallon- dumbo female betta
23 gallon- 4 pea puffers, crowntail, and bristlenose pleco

Aww, this reminds me of the pea puffers I had in highschool. They were soo cute. If I get an aquarium available I might need to get a pair.
The pair I had lived in a 10g and where never more then an inch apart! They stuck close together it was sweet.
