These new Botia helodes/hymenophyia that I adopted yesterday, that is!

While when one approaches the tank, they quickly hide, it's not but a few seconds until they're "oat & aboot" (as my "North of the Border" friends would say!)

They're in the Q-tank with the 8 or so "feeder" guppies that I never could catch.

After moving the Swim-bladder affected Moor to another Q-tank, I even went so far as to add an old Fluval 3 Internal filter (for the current...I *made* media out of an old AC-500 sponge-there's already an AC-200 on the 10 Gallon) AND I *finally* broke down & tied the GOBS of Java Fern to all the driftwood that I've been soaking for it!

Spoiled fish? Probably... An aquascaped Q-tank? For these guys... Why not?
