After 10+ years, I finally have a porky! :D

He's a tiny thing, only about 2 inches at the moment and in a 30 gallon for a few months until I find a decent deal on Craigslist for an acrylic tank that's 100+ gallons. Hope to get better pics when he stops pacing the glass and gets used to his new home. Poor thing is terrified of hands :( will also work on fattening him up once he starts eating. Thinking about getting a few ghost shrimp to entice him for now...
