Petey doesn't mind all that moving?

He handles it pretty good. No loss of appetite or anything! This was it , no more moving ever! Im never going thru the house buying process again! That and the tank moving is so hard and stressful.!

Since I lost Petey in Sept. , I did some aquascaping and added the filter sock back to the tank. Here are some recent additions to the tank .

Staying along the sames lines I added a Huma Trigger about a month ago .

Image

About 2 weeks ago I added a yellow tang , I wanted to add some more color .


Then there was this guy today at Oceans Below . I seen him and couldnt pass it up !










Image

Image

I wasnt planning on another Porc right away , but the it seemed like the right time. They never get Porcupines at this store , In the 4 years Ive been going there Ive seen a total of 3 before this little guy . Seemed like it was meant to be .

OH MY GOODNESS THAT FACE!!! He's so tiny! Congrats on your new puffle!! :D :D :D

Makes me heartsick for the one we lost in July :( though we were sadly and seriously misinformed about his care. He's what got me into puffers though, and later the forum, so I guess Dukel did his job in life ;) Maybe another some day when I have the room and resources. Until they, I'll live vicariously through you guys and enjoy Feather.

Do let us know when you come up with a name- so very exciting :D Thanks for sharing Chuck!

He is cute, not nearly as cute as Petey was... Rip little Petey

How about Petrie? Like from the land before time!

Geez! Just noticed how small he is!! And I thought some of the ones I've seen were tiny!
