Fun, just don't hug him too tight.

I'm not new to fish or plants, but am new to planted tanks. It is fun to learn new things and plantedtank.net is a great place to do it.

Make sure your hands are soap free during the petings haha.

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

I'd like to see a picture of him filter feeding. He can probably catch whole chunks in those mitts!

They're mesmerizing to watch but unfortunately mine likes to hide under the driftwood.

i don't really have anything, that picture is the only one iwas able to get, he saw my camera on the glass and swam off, but like said he is about 3 inches, give or take. if i can get a picture with a refernce i will most certainly put it up for you to see.
