I found it at hobby lobby for 50% off, and I passed it up, only to return two weeks later, desperately hoping it was still there. It was! for 66% off this time! (it was originally $80) I took it as a sign from God, and got it. When I was in line to buy it, the women in front and behind me were both eyeing it covetously, like they were tempted to snatch it from me, and they asked me those "where did you find that" questions that mean "you don't really want that, do you?" Some women get oddly fierce about their home decor. Anyway, Hyacinthe went crazy over it, 'cause in this one he can see his distorted reflection everywhere... heh heh. The first day, he kept trying to bite the glass. He still goes crazy every now and then, but he generally has accepted that he can't fight that other fish."
I'm freakin' obsessed with this camera... and my Hya. If I was a mermaid, I'd have Hya for a pet. He is a water-breathing scaled cat. So-called catfish are not catlike at all, but Hya's just so graceful and curious that I want to pet him! (I don't think my oils and such would be good for him, or I'd have tried)
Still can't settle on a name for my poor snail! He reminds me so much of something, but I can't think what! (It's like black opal, but not...)
