OMG I have to make one of the Banjos just sitting there with the music from the Deliverance banjo bit playing in the background.

Shouldn't be too hard to get a video of them just sitting there.

Went to Big Al's Black Friday sale.

I got a spotted raphael catfish to hang out with the chocolate talking catfish. He's the same size and was schooling with them at the store.

I got 3 BIG Catfish for my other tank. They're in with the Rainbows now, but if they grow any larger they're going in the 220. Got two striped raphaels and one spotted raphael in the big size.

As soon as they went in with the Rainbows, they all went into the hollow log together. They haven't come out.

Hopefully tomorrow they come out to feed so I can get some pics/videos. They are AMAZING.

AND I heard them talk today when they came out of the tank at the store! They croak like frogs. Now Charlie keeps asking for the fish to talk.

I got 3 new plants, put one in the pea puffer tank, and two in the amazon puffer tank.

Jakie, one is a Val, like yours that I love. I think it's a giant val, though I'm not positive. It's in my 35 gallon with the RTS and the puffers. It's so tall it's already bending at the top.

I don't know what the other two plants are, other than low light. I'll post pics tomorrow and maybe someone can identify them.

We also bought this, which is not a fish tank, but I'm a sucker for a good deal:



$80 for the enclosure, stand and dome light thing. I don't know if that's a good deal in the States but here I'm basically getting the stand and the light for next to nothing.

I haven't actually brought it home yet, we had too much in the car and had to get home because we have family in town, which is why I have no picture. We'll bring it home next week some time.

What to put in it? Who knows. A gecko or a frog? It was just too cheap to pass up. God knows where we'll put it.

I also got some freeze dried bloodworms because their pea puffers preferred them to frozen ones, but they don't seem interfered. They sell live white worms. They're tiny. Guess I'll pick some up and try those next.

I would try to get them on the frozen bloodworms because I read the freeze-dried isn't that healthy.

They don't seem interested in either so I think I'm going to try the live white worms. I am going to keep trying frozen ones because I feed them to my amazon puffers and it would be nice if I could feed them the same thing at the same time. Thanks for the heads up on the freeze dried ones, I did not know that.

The white worms are $4.99 for roughly 2500 and the girl told me they multiply quickly.

Boxer, they have some sweet deals!! Where did you order the plants from? What are you getting?

always seems to be some fishy project to get involved in...
looked at methods of 'growing' one's own white worms, fruit flies...
all of which fish may (or may not) like to eat.
however, 4.99 for 2500, that is probably the easiest method..

She said if I separate them into two margarine containers they'll double in quantity, and if I keep a little piece of bread in the container, I can just pick them off the bread.

I'll give it a try. I really like the pea puffers and I want them to eat.

maybe google the critters. I've seen some instructions out there on maintaining colonies of these worms. apparently even 'Cheerios' make a good meal for them.... for the worms that is..
