    For those that have been here at ac for awhile you will have seen this guy before. I myself have not seen his brilliant bod in its entirety for almost a year or more. Why he was out this morning with the lights on only he knows. Lucky for us that he was cause I got a picture of the Great Smaug in the flesh with my new cell cam.

    That's like the catfish in my 55g. The only time I ever saw him was when the lights were off and he was hiding in the fake driftwood. Is that his/her max size or will he/she get bigger?

    EDIT: Thanks for asking that question Ellen, I wanted to know also

    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
