Got to give a little background first...ok last year a good friend of mine was killed on his Harley ....horrible yes I miss him dearly...ok, now he had a little 10gallon tank with an African Dwarf frog in it..loved his frog (used to have me go and feed it for him if he went out of town etc.) so after his death his girlfriend (carying his child no less) knew nothing about aquariums fish or frogs etc. asked for me to please take the frog...of course I agree. blah blah blah...of course in the meantime I am moving back to Atlanta in like a week..so is frog. Well to my suprise as I am taking water and decor out of this little tank what do I find (scared the crap out of me) put a bristle nose pleco..I have know idea how long he had lived in there, and neither did anyone else..Mike never mentioned him!!!!! needless to say he is doing well after the 2 big moves and now residing in a 20 gallon setup...no worse for wear either..long story but I had to share.:1luvu:
