I've heard these H. gigas are known to swim under water so of course i had to have one. I actually got two that i keep communal. I came across the larger 2" checking hanging out at the edge of the water and as i opened thie lid he/she actually went partially under water. Not all the way..but i snapped a few pics. The dish of water is only about an inch deep but at one point he/she had head completely underwater. Pretty cool.
