Hey man, I remember you from Small world :p Good to see you around

Can't answer that though!

lol, yah I remember that site from many moons ago. It went downhill pretty quickly. I only have two fish tanks. But I still have about 60 snakes and various other critters. I think that was before I even wrote the book.

Is that freshwater or salt? Would I be able to have one in my 55 gallon or would it eat all the other fish?

They tend to eat anything they can fit in their mouth (or THINK they can fit in their mouth)
