Sure!

Here's some other pictures below. He (or so we think) tends to be more reclusive so it was tough to get a good picture but here's some more.

Thanks for the help everyone, much appreciated! I guess I will be headed back to the store tomorrow

Thanks for all your help everyone!
Reading about it an article is one thing but looking into your own tank (especially when you've got nothing to compare to) is another.

Take care,
Michelle
