LOL! YAY! NOW I don't have to "worry about feeding the fish, or having the fish die!"
What is the stocking rule on these guys, do you think the 1" per gallon rule applies? I'd LOVE to stock them in my 55. . .

This is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. My bf's 2 year old grandaughter is in love with "Nemo" and this is perfect for her.

Thanks for posting this!! Squeeeeeeeeeeee

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

before we put the 55 back up my daughter had 3 of these guys in a bowl. only downside the batts run out fast about a week or two and they can be annoying "hitting off the glass and such"

Good to know. Maybe I'll skip the bowl that they sell and get a big plastic one from Petco or Petsmart.

Thx

Funniest part was the statement:
Fish don't live long

One poster on another board had a tang that had lived for 15 years.

maintain Fw and marine system with a strong emphasis on balanced, stabilized system that as much as possible are self substaning.

have maintained FW systems for up to 9 years with descendants from original fish and marine aquariums for up to 8 years.

With no water changes, untreated tap water, inexpensive lighting by first starting the tank with live plants (FW) or macro algae( marine)

Hmmm,I wonder if a guy could affix a set of treble hook's to these somehow?
Could be the next super bait for bass fisherman.?

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
