"Ralph" was already this size when I got him. He seems to be doing well. Actually what I told Gump was incorrect -- if you are going to keep more than one African Elephant Nose you need a minimum of 4, as they will bully each other. I only have room for the one and will need to upgrade the size of his home. Did you know that the African Elephant Nose has a larger brain-to-body size ratio than human beings?

Just frozen foods -- brine shrimp, glass worms (white mosquito larvae)blood worms. And Gump, put a blue (marine-glo) light in the tank, the AEN likes it dark, and provide a good hiding spot for him (broad leafed plants and a rock cave or driftwood large enough for him to hide under). Mine was very shy when I first got him and would only eat if the tank light was off and the room was also dark. He's much better now, I've actually managed to photograph him but I'm having a hard time getting the photos uploaded into the fishforum (been trying for days). Good like with your AEN Gump. :)
