I spied one of the wee ancistrus babies I got from @neogeo20041 chowing down on the underside of a slice of zucchini today, and I thought it made a cute pic!

Nothing in this planted 10g but the BN and snails, as I'm undecided on how to stock it otherwise. He's right at 2cm long - adorable.

Well, he's a little behind schedule, actually, because I didn't realize he was in the tank!

I had taken everything out when I moved the angels to my 30g cube at home (this tank is at work), thinking I had removed all the fish, and the tank was sitting there, no plants, no filter, no light, no nothin' for a week or 10 days, and what do I see one day on the glass but this little fellow! Whoopsie..... Embarassed

So I set the tank back up, brought the plants back to work and got it going again, brought in some snails and am trying to get him caught up with his mates, lol. I guess I miscounted when I put some of those wee fellas in there originally. He seems none the worse for wear though. You gotta love catfish - they are tough, though I'm sure he wasn't suffering too much, actually.

Haha..things happen especially with fish that hide so well. So, I don't blame you Smile.

@neogeo20041 @Liz I have to agree. I find them very difficult to catch in a planted tank without tearing it up...Laughing

This is true, @JohnnyAMH, especially at this size. I didn't even realize I had missed him. He's king of the 10-gal now, lol.
