abbeytheferret6 We have a 40 gal tank, about half full. It's not elaborate, but i has natural flat river rock cave and a recently added artificial tree root. We are going to get some substrate tomorrow after terp 2 arrives. There's currently 6 neons and a couple algae eaters in there. So far Atlas hasn't shown much interest in fish. The neons were a buck at petsmart with card. Philbert would have dispatched them with gusto and haste.
And here's the new western painted, who we've dubbed Titan, because he's bigger than Atlas and it's another rocket beast I used to work on. I missed the pic of when they first got shell to shell, but so far they're ignoring each other.
Atlas is on the bottom in back, directly below Titan

It looks like I never posted about these dudes. Last spring a part time coworker was digging in his garden and found some trtle eggs. He happened to know I had turtles and asked what to do with them. I said I'd put them in a bucket and see what happens. Well, a few days later they hatched and he asked if I wanted some. I said sure, I'll take a couple. One year later...
IMG_1861 by unclejoe1158, on Flickr They have their own smaller tank and we haven't named them as we plan to release them sometime this summer. Atlas and Titan are doing well and are bigger of course. The snappers are about their size and A & T won't get much bigger. We have the kiddie pool set up on the deck so hey can get some sun I'll try to get A& T pics soon.
