Sweet. That pic is from like two years ago. Heres a few other shots from the same time.

He was in a 46g back then and now (since Jan/2012) he lives in a 55g now with 5 BBGs. I need to order more BBGs as his original 9 have died except for 1 and their 4 offspring. I love BBGs but their short 2.5-3 year life span sorta stinks. This F8 is the most laid back, docile fella. When I got him back in 2010 he was full grown so who knows how old he actually is.
