    Saturday morning I woke up and found my fish tank so cloudy I couldn't even see the rock. My three cardinal fish were dead by the glass in the front. I noticed the entire bottle of fish food had been dumped into the tank. After investigating, my 4 year old confess' and told me that he did it...

    Yeah, I said Albino lol. He is such a beast, more animated and prevelant than any other brittle I have ever seen/had. He will literally hunt down food like a savage and eat as much as I will provide him, (by the way, I 'target drop' big shrimp pellets for him). I know inverts have minimal brain...
