    Trying to get him to come out of his burrow to get a full shot. Using a feeding stick. If i put it in front of him he'll come after it.

    Yeah he's pretty awesome. I know that alot of people call peacock's thumbsplitters. But I've also learned that they learn to recognize their master's or recognize people in general. So i think he know's who i am now. I just rearranged the rock formation in my tank for him. Its good to every so often so he has to dig it out again. Good recreation for him. Anyhow, in this process he found one of the turbo snails i have discreetly been putting in there on TOP of the rock to clean it. He found one and started beating it and i took it from him with my hands, and he didn't kill me. I then managed to pet him which yes, i know is crazy, but was awesome at the same time. i think he knows who i am. Kinda exciting.
