No problem. Mine was really small, maybe 2" so depending on the size it might not be as much of an issue.

Yep he does, but he is freaking awesome :D and not shy at all, i'm going to call him Steve and maybe get a partner ( maybe ), he and his Syno friend will have a planted tank of they'r own when they are bigger ( prob around 50-70 gallons )

Lol like the name. These guys are great I had one for about 6 mons. But x2 on making sure tank is covered good. Lost mine when my tank sprung a leak while waiting for repairs to cure. He was in a big storage tub and the lid got bumped just a little to the side and he jumped out. And congrats they only get cooler as they get bigger
