    Ya.... I need to be more careful of the background noises. One time I posted a video and never listened before I posted. Come to find out, the middle child had dropped the F-Bomb right in the middle of it while playing Xbox. Busted and grounded.

    Pretty darn amazing Incognito. :)

    The Ghoul tag does not do it justice. The way it creeps around and moves it's head and eyes are bizzare. Almost like the evolutionary ladder went way astray with that fish, fish being questionable!!!!!!!


    So no theories on the color loss ?

    Enjoyed your thread as usual, thanks for sharing.

    Awesome fish. Definitely unique, that's for sure! I like the feeding legs. Great write up, Incognito. :) K+++

    Is this kind of fish hard to care for?

    I'm sure this has been asked many times, but what camera do you use? I think you said something like a Nikon D40? Great shots.

    What color loss.

    No, very easy. Once you get them converted they are an auto-pilot undemanding kind of fish. I only feed on Mon, Wed and Fri.

    They were taken with either a Canon 20D or a 40D.... maybe even with the 5D Mark II.
