What happened to him?

"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."

it must not have been too long cause his bro is right next to him and they were kinda tiny. idk how old they are in the first pick though.

Nice of you to give him a good home. :)

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

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
