Well, luckily its silicone and flexible. I think he has a really good chance at passing it. Although thats a pretty big suction cup.

You need to get the aro out and into a medical tank so you can add Epsont salt, that way the aro will spit out. Don't know if you remember which red :)

Well....after almost 2 months after eating a clear suction cup....look what I found last week at the bottom of my tank! YUP...it was once Clear!....amazing that he had it in for that long...sorry for the lousy pics...too lazy to use my dslr so used my iphone..

quick update...my female BD was definitely prego....but during one day when i was at work a month ago, she went from FAT FAT to skinny as a bone...i figure she gave birth and the rest of the group had a expensive lunch!. I suspect it could be either one of the other 2 BD's as I noticed they were fat in the belly vs the aros and tigers....

Wow. Lucky the suction cup got passed, unlucky about the ray. You might want to get some kind of holding tank, or even a plastic children's pool to hold your female next time she gets pregnant? I wonder what is involved in moving a pregnant ray, whether there is a risk of "miscarriage"... :confused:
