Kai, my Figure Eight (Tetraodon biocellatus) Rescue!

I am in the middle of writing a blog post about her but here is a photo for everyone of how I found her sleeping this morning. She ate a snail (I think) last night and has chowed down on the blood worms this morning. She got really brave last night and came to the front of the tank but she's still being a bit shy this morning. She's so cute!
