Doc says if the stones are small <1cm, then u can opt for the dissolving method (no operation of any kind), but for my cousin's case, the stone is already 1.8cm. And it is blocking the kidney connection to the bladder. Scary...
Holy crap... that is really scary. Doctor prescribed internal damage doesn't sound too good no matter how you phrase it...

Yeah... That's my idea as well.. those edges need to be hidden. Actually I was planning to get a rectangular pot a bit higher than the pond, so it will automatically hide the edges. It's in my consideration depending of the type of pot available.

Hahahaha.. I haven't removed it, actually I plan to put it in my betta tank. My betta seems to love swimming all over the place (not just top surface).

Yep end to end, she is about 4". Not that lonely, there are a couple of danios in there hehe.
Ahhh, don't go spending tons of money on the pots when the plants will cover it in due time! When are you getting that giant water lily thing :P?

And I can't see anything else in the tank besides her haha, she's huge! Is there tons of her poop on the bottom of the tank? How are you cleaning that?

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
