I took a little palp in back around 2003 or 2004, it was a unwanted pet ... its small, now probably only around 20 or so inches, but by far the best palp I have ever had. Real laid back unless you touch her ... eats anything and everything including croc chow which I thought was pretty rare for a palp.

Maybe a year or 2 after I had got her, she was set up in a aquarium with a glass heater that was left unprotected, stupid me .. anyway, she broke the heater and got zapped, and zapped pretty good I think ... I saw that the heater was broke and she was in the water acting normal just chilling there, I freaked out and grabbed her out, I got a hell of a zap ... amazingly I pulled her out and she was fine.

I started using the plastic stealth heaters after that in the set ups that I use heaters in ... I find for most of my indoor stuff that the heaters really are not even needed.

Nice tuff palps are hard to find ... I had a really tuff adult male when I was a kid, wish I still had him! and I have the super tuff little one now and I dont think I will ever part with her! I imported 50 or so a couple years back, they arived in terrible shape, took me a long time to get them all back up to par but even then they seemed 100% healthy but man they were kicking the bucket left and right for no reason, not tuff like other species I dont get it, tey seem so fragile .. imported ones anyway!
