I wish I had taken a camera with me... I discovered a new aquarium store not far from here. It was huge
. A hidden gem. Well, not quite a gem since the prices were higher than anywhere I'd been yet. They had more fish, freshwater and saltwater, than I'd ever seen before. They even had a shark tank with large sharks.
What really impressed me, though, was the giant porcupine puffer fish I found swimming in one of the tanks. This thing was at least
a foot and a half long. Maybe even two feet. Like many porcupine puffer fish, it appeared to be smiling. It's giant, protruding eyes followed my fingers as I waved them in front of the glass.
Maybe I have been spending too much time thinking about fish, but not a day has gone by that I haven't thought about it since seeing it last week.
One day I will have a setup that can house such a creature. My dream fish
