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.
