    Kaosu---> t.y. and good to hear tht they can go a little while. pretty sure i seen him suck up a couple blood worms last night. the past several days he has not been in hiding; been out and about the tank, still a bit cautious tho. he sticks pretty close to the plants or rocks.

    L.P----> glad to hear there is another member to the club. do you have pics posted newhere?

    Wiggles---> sorry to hear tht. i love mine so far! cool little fish...

    I just lost my 2 sculpins, the first was killed by a big crayfish that I subsequently removed, the second lived for a while longer but randomly passed, not sure why Both were (seemingly) healthy and eating like pigs too...

    aww im so sorry!...this happens allot from what I have seen...im guessing the warmer temps of your tank might of done it mine starts acting strange an gasping at about 75o

    but don't give up! try again..maybe get a tank set up for just one alone this summer?...make sure to collect from a lake when the water is warm..some hot summer day early summer when they are all young and in the shallows..that is where i got mine..going on 2 years with the beast.
