    After 2 hours last night with a variety of chopped foods, net etc etc....no luck:p

    reconsidering bens idea ! Going to try the coke bottle trick today & see what happens !

    Yeh after 2 stings the wife became a bit anxious ;) Ag and also my son loves helping feed the fish, clean the glass etc...so decided to rather keep it a family thing than just a hobby for me

    the eel is the only thing left (lions got good homes :thumbup:)

    heres the end result after "combining" the two tanks
