This is the only fish I've ever named, though I don't know if I can share it here. The nerite is working on getting the glass clean....

LOL. He must think your finger is a giant worm or something.

And now you've got me wondering what his name is. Please pm me with it :)

Yeah, she's one tough cookie. When I reach for a remote, I can hear her crash into the glass.

She grew up in a 75 gallon tank - thrown in as a fry as a feeder. Her attitude is why she survived, I think. Once she was about an inch long, she ruled the tank (African knife, bichir, featherfin - all 7 inches, and a 5 inch ctenopoma, plus the congos). I later moved her to the 55, which had chanchito cichlids (4-6 inches), tiger barbs and others, and she dominate that tank too. She topped out at 2.5 inches, so now she owns the 10 gallon tank, and the right side of my bed. She does share the tank with a nerite snail, amazingly enough. I just put my rabbit snail in there too - trying to find a tank it likes since breaking down the 55.

She's quite a beggar when she sees me feed the 125. It's a love/hate relationship ;-)

The videos were taken in succession, so that was basically a 10 minute attack.

"and the right side of my bed"... lol That made me laugh!!

10 just doesn't seem big enough for such a big personality tho does it? She'd probably own and rule that 125 too wouldn't she even if she was alone in it? Does her name rhyme with hitch by the way?

The 55 and 75 weren't big enough either. If I put her in the 125 she would rule that too, that much I am sure. For all I know she's claimed the whole room :)

Why yes, her name does rhyme with hitch....

When I wake up and look over, she's sitting there staring me down.

I'm not big on sweet anyways ;-) I like a little mean streak in my girls.
