My favorite was how he sat on top of his log and watched me all day. Also he would wait for me by the door for me to come home.

Ty guys and gals :D . It's not the best of pics but I had these for awhile and just decided to post them anyways. Noticed how he just sat there. Well really hard to get a good pic of him now because he hardly ever buries, hides, or sets still. 90% of the time, he is active and never sets still long enough to get a good shot..lol.

Does he have sand to burrow in? Those pebbles look too big for him to comfortably dig into.

I've fallen in love with Congos after seeing all the lovely ones people on this forum have. Misery is particularly cute! I think there will be a Congo in my future, for sure.
Yo ho, yo ho, a puffer's life for me.

Yeah, he is in sand. The gravel was already in the tank and it was a one in a lifetime get him or lose him. So I got a heck of a deal on a healthy congo and I took it. I mentioned above the the gravel to sand change out soon after I add him to the tank. He is suckin down average size earthworms now. When the pic was takin, he was eating small roseys but I got him off of live feeder fish pretty fast.

Bertie, dont kill the bunny...lol I will try to get some newer pics of him up as soon as I can.
