    They're awesome, Rachel!

    Makes me miss my ornate poly and African Lungfish (my foray into ancient fish)... but they both went to good homes back in Sacramento....

    The ornate was pushing 20" and the Lung 2 feet when I re-homed them...

    I moved mine (each) into a 150g Rubbermaid pond in the garage...

    Found some pics of the poly (sorry to derail)...

    nice ornate! I just gave one away to Danger Chicken as he just was not big enough, or growing fast enough, to keep up with the big boys.
