Re: RIP Filbert ='{

Taps for a special fish.

Thanks for sharing his amazing history.

Will there be consideration for another Fahaka some day in the future ?

Excited Fakaha Having Large Snail Rapture

This big fellow is so excited by the prospect of a snail snack that he almost attempts to swim THROUGH the tank's front glass
to get at the juicy treat. Yummy. CRUNCH - CHOMP - CRUNCH - CRUNCH.....

Agreed. ( This is not my aquarium.)

I posted this guy's video as a warning.

Re: Porcupine eating a mussel

That's a very nice looking porky.

Crunching mussels obviously agrees with him.

Rescued Porky is freed From Net



This one will make you feel good. A concerned swimmer cuts a netted Porky free from the mesh using a piece
of glass as a knife. Obviously exhausted, our freed Porcupine appears to be helped and pushed along into
deeper water by another concerned puffer. Neat !

Re: My predatory tank

Okay I just saw this thread... wtf? http://cdn.meme.am/instances/500x/13793384.jpg I'm being half serious, with a touch of aquarium humor. Almost every captive MBU on the planet earth is probably in a tank that's "too small". That being said, every MBU owner plans to "address the problem" at a late...

Re: Congo Puffer Lone White Spot Help!

That's one really nice-looking Congo, vince106. I'll agree with the previous posters on watching for any possible infection. How long has the "spot" been visible ? Did it perhaps start after a rowdy feeding ? Any chance this is a slice wound from a ticked-off prey item ( crayfish, crab, etc....) ? I...

Re: Hairy puffer squeaking?!

Totally cool. Please do try to get us a brief video snip of your finned friend doing the squeak. I'm chuckling just thinking about squeaking puffers and all of the really bad jokes and puns that will no doubt emerge. https://img0.etsystatic.com/140/0/6508741/il_214x170.853231438_2h8w.jpg
