I'm probably not back perminately as my sanity floats somewhere between Johnny Depps' "Willie Wonka" and the grandfather from "Chitty-chitty Bang-Bang" but I had to post a finding I made in one of my remaining tanks this very morning at 7:30 AM PST...

I seem to have successfully spawned Indian Pea Puffers!

Don't know if I'm the first person to do so, but I am floored none the less.

Quite unintentionally I assure you. I'll try to get a picture of the babies, which are the size of small peas at the moment.

Wish I could have seen the eggs

Take care Big D and good luck with the fishes

You made that up, didn't you?

Oh, no... I guess not.

That's a female or a frightened male Jim. Considering the hand in the picture it could go either way. Dominate males have horizontal stripes.

The little guy I found this morning is barely a quarter of an inch long and box-like in shape. Reminds me a lot of a cow fish without the horns. His body colors are brilliant green with the black spots.

How do you find out if you're the first? I used to know but all my contacts are dead now.

And being a non-photographic type of person, dispite really, really wanting to, I can't get a descent shot of the baby fish. Though I'm trying. At least the film for the digital camera isn't all that expensive. :whistle:

Well, good bye.

I'll try to make it back sometime soon.

"BigDon hasn't been around in a while," Thought Fazor. A cold chill ran down his spine. "That crazy old ba. . . he's finally done it. I bet he's finally done it! He's engineered his own mutant army!"

. . . thanks for coming by and confirming my greatest fears, Big-D. ;) Good luck with the fishies!

Yes, good to hear from you, BD. I was a bit concerned given some of your comments about your health before your last break. Try not to take quite so long on your next break, okay?

Well, if you really got rid of all your competitors that way, you probably are the first!

Cute little bugger.

Does sound a lot like "Peruvian Puff Peppers" of Drake and Josh and iCarly fame.
