I got a 6month old male brb today off craigslist. I felt I had to save the little guy. Previous owner had him in a ten gallon tank w/screen lid, hardly any water, and to top it off he was on sand. Poor guy doesn't even shine that wonderful rainbow. His complain was that it always had feed problems. First off this dude had absolutely no idea what he was doing nor done any kind of research on the poor animal. So I feel I rescued my new friend. Gonna let him get used to being in correct conditions for fhe rest of the day and night and see if I can't get the bugger to accept a few rat pinkies tomorrow. I will post pics tomorrow, I don't really want to bother him anymore than he has been in the past few months. Wish me luck. Btw he was only 50 bucks. I say big score!
