I got so so curious when I saw this post up top....do ya'll realize the pics were posted one year ago :shock:

I couldn't remember making any recent posts of Albert, so here's my Boy in more recent times.....I call him Marge's male American Counterpart ;)

Was trying to get a size reference for Sully :roll: You can see the 3" mark on his pectoral, and the 5" mark on his tummy fin :)

and in one of his many odd nap spots :lol:

No worries, he wasn't stuck. That thing has 4 holes he can fit through, so when he woke up, he swam right out 8)

Thanks, Graeme :D

I've got it set up so the loaches have a straight open run across the entire back and the entire front, plus lots of places to go back and forth in between :):) They race track it once in a while. Pretty hilarious when they get going :lol:

I bumped it because I want to see those loaches every day and its easier for me to find it!

Hola,

Your fish are all incredible. When I saw your festivum for the first time I also thought it was an severum. Your big botia is unique, congratulations.

How is your aquarium by now?

Thank you very much.
