    thankyou for that we thought thats what he might be but always good to double check but hes cool anyway we collect live food for the both of them once a week so they can snack on white bait and boxer shrimp all week long and also we supply them with frozen food as well

    These are wonderful pics! He's not only cute, but he's also a very happy-looking occie. I like the tank, too, very nice shells.
