    Totally appreciate he is busy, because he's good, and I would expect ours will be delivered together with us being local to each other. We must keep in contact ref that.

    Nice to see someone else with an evil burrowing monnster in their tank, even though yours never caused mayhem like my little terror :devil2:

    lol Are we BOVVERED? Do I LOOK BOVVERED? Hysterical

    Yeah definitely Paul.......although it wont be until the end of next month my order goes through. I want a provisional quote and then I am going to do what you did and go and visit Nick with my final ideas. Still, if you want Nick to hold onto your tank until mine is ready too I am sure he will hehe lol ;)

    Just taken all the rock out of the Boyu but have left in the rock holding the mystery guest. This will be broken in the morning :hammer:

    We did however find this fella burrowed under the large plate....

    So the mystery guest makes a forced appearance :)

    The rock in which he is hiding....

    [​IMG]

    Cracked open he is quickly looking for refuge in an extremely porous rock....

    [​IMG]

    Into a plastic bowl....

    [​IMG]

    Moved to a pot bowl as he kept climbing out of the plastic one....

    [​IMG]

    And he measures in at 5 inches and was still moving away when I took this shot in an attempt for :brave:....

    I found a little one alive in a heater that had been out of water for 3 days! They certainly are resilient little barstewards aren't they.
    I also found a very large one in my trigon, il see if I can find a pic.
    Also on a positive note, even if there were any other wee ones in your live rockyou can be safe in the knowledge there no where near your new tank.
    There in kevs LOL.

    The rock was extremely porous and just crumbled apart. He was defo on his own and complete so I reckon Kev has nothing to worry about :)
