    Exactly, I have a big one in my tank. My buddy has like 20 of them, mostly small. I read they reproduce easily in our tanks. So I am thinking of getting a couple from him to boost my population. Hopefully they will reproduce for me too. How does that sound.

    My wife is moreso like that about my cukes!!!!

    Flycut,
    There will never be "too many". Once they get going in your tank, you'll surprised as to just how many you'll see at night time on the glass. It looks like they are indeed in a plague proportion, but it's all good!!
    And yes, if you can get some from your friend then that will give them a boost!! Make sure to play romantic music at night time, don't stare to much while they do "the deed" and they will populate quite well!!
