Post by jtydell » Mon Mar 27, 2006 8:58 am

Yeah I see these guys whenever someone gives me a frag of Buttons, the last one I got was at the party off of Andy's frag he gave me :lol: Here is a shot I got from my 20 gallon last year.

That is almost the exact same thing, minus the skin pigment. The case that caught him at the scene of the crime means extermination. These little nudies eat buttons in quite large numbers.
