They got some clown loaches in at my Big Al's yesterday. I haven't seen them yet but they're probably small, they're only asking $7.99 for them. My store usually sells them for $9.99+

Gonna pick up 5 tomorrow. Can't wait.

Ok, tried feeding the dwarf puffers for the first time. One of them ate a bunch! I don't think the others ate any. Hopefully tomorrow.

I had to edit out half of the video where he's eating because Charlie is prancing around naked on the other side of the tank, which my wife, who was filming, didn't notice.

The little punk had clothes on five minutes earlier!!

One of the fish has been winking at us!!

My RTS tank is teeming with TINY snails 1 mm maybe, maybe 1.5 when they get a little bigger, I'll try feeding them to the puffers. And my loaches. There used to be two adult snails in the RTS tank, before the RTS arrived.

Charlie's Betta!

Charlie finally got his fish today! After all the "orange one" talk, he picked a blue and red one. They had a huge shipment of Bettas in, never saw that many at the store before. I can't believe how much some people will pay for a freaking Betta. Needless to say, we got one of the cheap ones.

I forgot to my camera to get a video of Charlie picking out the fish, but it is just as well, because it took forever.

He had named it Mary Poppins, for now. But I figure that will change many times.

Clown Loaches!!

We got six.

Not buying any more fish for awhile!!

Though, they did get a bunch of cool weather loaches in at our LFS this week....

At first three of the Black Skirts attacked one of the poor little Clowns, but I chased them off and now they're leaving him alone. I got lots of video of them, good thing too. The next time I went downstairs they all hid under a piece of driftwood.
