Probably because I fix him up a big shrimp cocktail every other night.
Christina always says it looks like I am giving the shrimp a dip in a hot tub, to bad I follow it up with slicing the shrimp in pieces. Loses the relaxing vibe, eh?I finally have Fajita eating straight from my hands, which will come in handy once he is over three feet. I still usually use an extension rod to feed him, since I am quite partial to my fingers.
In fact, at the beginning, he got a little rowdy and took a nip at me.
Please disregard our awesome basement complete with lots of 2×4’s and little boy racecar curtains.
See how our shrimp is hitching a ride on the shark?Bet ya didn’t know he is actually picking his brethren out of Fajita’s gills to get a late night snack. You little cannibal you.
How long do you think before I lose a finger?
Think a shrimp fajita sounds tasty?
Want to buy some racecar curtains?
It’s officially official….
WE ARE SHARK PARENTSAfter a whole lot of waiting our baby shark decided to surprise us this weekend.
We literally bounced off walls.
Don’t ask about the name, it just kind of fit.
Very “apple-esque” don’t cha think.
Fajita is about the size of our hand, he’s teeny tiny.
I wish I could pick him up and snuggle.How could you not love that face.
Now comes the really hard part.
We have to get him to eat.
We have heard it can take up to two weeks to get them to start munching. We are already trying, and in our heads he is already picking up that it is food. But doesn’t everyone think that their little one is ahead of the game.
When you say your prayers tonight, throw in little Fajita.
He’ll thank you later.
We have already decided that if we DO get him eating, then a bigger tank is in order. Obviously I have already begun planning.
No way can we let this little munchkin go until he is at least four feet.He has already made friends with the little shrimp. If only that shrimp knew that in a couple months Fajita will want him for dinner.
Mama’s so proud.
