    I was reading the other day, somewhere on the net about the friendliest Koi. Now I can't find the article or the name of the breed they were talking about. The article was saying how these Koi are so tame that they are the easiest to train to eat out of your hand. They also will help teach the rest of the fish in the pond to do the same. Anyone know which breed this might be?

    I just went from a 200 gal pond to a 4000 gal pond. The fish love it, but one of my 2 turtles ran away, guess he didn't like the new digs.

    A tidbit I picked up that isn't common knowledge (fairly new info from the science world).

    Turtles can get *very* confused when moved instead of traveling on their own.

    For instance, if you pick a turtle up and put it on the other side of the road, it may spend the rest of its life circling around trying to find "home" and won't eat/drink.

    Koala bears also get very confused when blocked or moved from their home tree.

    I wonder how sloths handle being moved?
