    From what I have gathered she is expressing all the air so she can stay on the bottom....rob

    Out of this world cool! and kind of scary! not because i'm woried that i'll be bit by a t next time i jump in a lake but because it turns out your tanks can get even more creative. :eek:

    now just got to see if they will breed underwater:p

    Hey Rob.
    When you get her settled in, are you gonna consider putting a fish in the pond to see if she will go after it?

    that is so neat, i heard they could swim and catch small fish, but never actually seen it.
    and don't say she is mean:shame: , admit it - you love it!!:wicked:

    i just wish i could do tanks like that. i might break down one day and try to make a neat tank setup - after i get some tanks that i can lock up.

    Dang dude just when i think you did it all you pull something like this. totally amazing:clap: man i can't wait to see the finished tank.

    off the subject, what the word on your huge pokey tank with the tree and waterfall

    Working on the new tank now...should be done in an hour or two. There will be a lot of wood surrounding the pond so I don't know how well anyone will be able to see her swimming/fishing but I'll be shooting some video just in case.

    The pokie tank is still a plan of mine but due to the expense of that many pokies ($8-10K), it's going to be a little while before I can do it but I'm still planning on it...
