Loved the video - my babies really like nomming on Tilapia, too. :)
It's awesome that your brother is building you a stand for the Loach tank. I am SO excited for that tank. . . can't wait to see it unfold!
Well, I've read they can do okay on their own. They will sometimes attach themselves in a way to another fish to try to forfill that social aspect they need. Some people report having a rope cuddle with a fw eel. I don't want him to have to resort to that and the place he came from says they might get an order in next Wed. So I'm going to cross my fingers and hope they come in.
Haha, he's currently the most active fish in the tank. It's neat to watch him glide around in a snake like fashion. Not unlike a salt-water snake.
I'm excited too! I am really really hoping we can get the bracing done today if the weather holds up. I want to get started on the hardscape but before that using my sealer to make the wood water-resistant.
