What a goober! :o

I'm sorry about the plant Helen, but I must say, he's a real looker! :heart Lovely form.

Do you usually have problems with your kids eating the Anubias? I'm planning on adding it to my aquarium but I'm worried now that my goldies will eat it. :unsure:

Also, is that driftwood in there? Did you buy it or find it? And if you bought it, would you happen to know if it's a certain kind? I'm planning on purchasing some for my new setup and can't choose between Maylasian driftwood or Mopani driftwood. :doh11:

thanks kateana. no, Elizabeth Taylor is a keen redecorator and she does have problems with the flowers so they need to be trimmed by her the moment they open :doh11: however, she does not munch on the leaves, just pulls at them so the whole plant can shift. hercules will actually pull the leaves so much, they lift and he shifts them like that, except his interest is more the feed rather than redecorating. yes, that is driftwood i purchased ages ago, and i am sorry but i have no idea which type so i can't help there :(

The small anubias are tasty (ask Godzilla ;) ) and she considers the flowers to be a real treat, that is way I have the common firm leaved variaty (can't remember the name) in the tank.

Besides his destroying tendencies, he is very good looking though

Kateana: I've tried Mopani driftwood before. It's absolutely beautiful to have in a tank but it leaches for an eternity. When I got my first piece I thought boiling it repetitively and then soaking for two weeks would do the trick and it didn't. Mopani wood has a reputation for needing to leach tannins for up to a year before your tank water doesn't turn dark brown. I've never tried Malaysian wood, but unless you have a significant amount of time to leach the mopani wood I would investigate another type. I finally gave up and removed it from my tank. Just my two cents so you don't have to go through the same process I did without warning :)

How did I miss this? I've never seen a goldfish go after an Anubis plant like that before. Does he eat it or just rip it apart?

perhaps to normal fish ie, before he joined the tank, the anubias was fine, but since, i do believe more and more, there's definately some bulldozer in him :tomuch::rofl
