yes it is. I'll move the trapdoors to another tank, just to be safe, the others I have enough of them in each one (my blue lobster loves them)

Hi Jack,

here there's no problem of them being underfed /laugh.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid="Laugh" border="0" alt="laugh.gif" /> I've been known to "sleepwalk" with a high temperature to feed the fish... /blink.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":blink:" border="0" alt="blink.gif" />

changed plans, Rosies will go in my 125l tank, and endlers have gone in my snail only tank
