thanks everyone. he/she arrived great. nothing at all to indicate worries. Just added tank water to acclimate and he is just jetting around playing on the ledges that the bag creates in the water.
How did I come up with Ochi.....(Long and Short version)
1. Wife and I were married in Ocho Rios Jamaica
2. Ocho Rios means - Eight Rivers in Jamaican
3. Ochi is there native slang name for Ocho Rios
so.... Ochi is slang for eight
me too scouse, I was actually concerned of dumping any of the shipping water into Ochi's tank, so I saw no other way(was not using a net!!!!!) but he agreed and crawled right on for a ride. Hopefully, he will always be this accepting. I believe it can only go up from here!! :D
definitley agree on the only way is up, if he's acceptin your hand now, its only positive, suppose you've just gotta keep that bond goin an build.
Nancy's relationship with Ollie was amazin by the sound of things, so hopefully others can discover even more, im sure its not unrivalled just the way she documented it so well. i suppose sittin next to the little-un helped as well.
keep us informed on how you get on in that department :D
you too sideways !!! :D
you should both try an do some similar little experiments of some sort an see what happens, if personalities effect response's etc
god i cant wait until the clocks stops tickin an dthe world stops spinnin.......... an mine arrives!!! 5-6months yet.... :D
:D Well everyone! If you could only see Neptune with his new play mate right now. When we first got home tonight he was hiding in a little dungeon he created. After a while he decided to come out and let Neptune know that he was not too happy being disturbed! He got over it very quick though and decided to have some fun exploring the tank walls. Neptune tells me that Ochi has never experienced glass on a tank wall before :) It was very obvious as he was like a little child learning how to ride a bike, skirting up and falling down just as quickly. After a few minutes he got the hang of it and it was very amusing to watch him play! We are having fun already. Sorry so long- just excited!
