A late sub, but I really like it! It's got five colors: orange, light green, dark green, light blue, and white (eyes)

I like the use of the whole green shirt as the algae, and of the fish wiping it away - the look on the fish's face is great

love your fish, skek. gmv

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Very clever. It's a little hard to "visually parse" the idea, though. It almost seems like the "foreground" fish is looking out through a hole in the castle. What I think would nail it is if you moved the foreground fish so that it overlapped some part of the /edge/ of the castle behind it. That way you could see clearly that the fish is in front of the castle and not inside it.

Very amusing design. :-)

Thanks! Hmm.... I was hoping the wipe marks would bring it home, but I see what you're talking about...

Funny and clever. I like it, Skek. But I think you forgot to mention light blue, and that there are 5 colors.

Greatest song ever written about JFK here. NSFW... or children... or anyone who's offended by the idea that JFK might have been a robot... fair warning.

I get it. Even with the castle behind him.

Re: Green Algae Problem...

I bought my catfish an entire new setup and he is the only fish in the tank, and I still have algae and water troubles.
Stupid fish.

Whoops! Good eye! Glad it's still below the 6!

Regarding the design: I had this exact problem (green water) when I had my tank near the window- couldn't keep the darn algae down. Thankfully, I moved it away from the window, and that solved it.
