    Yeah yeah, lol at least the gar wasn't the one who decided to bite me. lol Whole bunch of nice happy koi, and then the catfish (well two catfish) and a gar. Fun mix there. Maybe that was it, I was too busy watching for the gar.

    lol I am working on that. I acquired a 300 gallon barrel for holding rain water and tank water. Just figuring out how to set it up properly to use. You asked about my siphon, it's just a regular old siphon. Though for this particular tank it normally works just fine. I've looked into those pythons but I don't have the right faucet end to hook into.

    I hope the LFS at least gave you a discount?
    Oh god, don't say that Lee.... :( As for the LFS, I didn't exactly tell them, I felt pretty dumb and I don't know if they'd be too happy knowing I was sticking my hands in the water. haha

    I'm 95% sure they are silvers. Fingers crossed on that. Got them in QT and they are quite active right now. Wrapped the tank in black paper since I don't have anything in the tank to provide them cover. Figured that would help them out. I've got a few pics for you guys.

    When Inwas in houston in june one lfs had a pond inside. Sine said dont feed fish. But nothing about putting hand over the water. Well when oscars and catfish start putting the head above the water surface. Himmmm not a good idea to leave hand there. Nice sized fish in pond.
    Congrats on hatchets.

    My handy work. You can see the far right where I added more sand back into the tank. The rest... eh.. I'll siphon what I can next time and leave the rest. Too much of a hassle adding sand back into the tank to cover it. Plus I was hoping these plants would fill in and you would hardly see the sand anyway. Check out that parva in the front, been in only a month and already starting to send runners.

It's going great, then a catfish materializes from the bottom and bites down on my fingers. Now I've got bandaids all over my fingers. lol Not a good few days to be me. Got my hatchetfish though! :D
    Good lord, you have a had a rough couple days...that means something really cool is gonna happen....dont know if it'll happen to you, but it'll happen..

    Congrats on the new fish!!

    LOL SeaLady! Well if not me, I hope it happens to someone on the forum who's having a rough time of it then!

    I must say though, it was a cool learning experience. I'm sitting here looking at the bite marks. It was like a quarter of an inch think line of teeth. They felt like a very VERY stiff brush. Interesting sensation if nothing else. Who says this hobby isn't full of danger and excitement! lol
