A year ago from today I got my little friend Mr. Tesla! It's been fun setting him up and watching him grow a little (his claws grew crazily). Here are some pictures to share this day that I've collected during our time together. :) (Forgive me for quality, I kinda stink at taking good pictures).

Image
This was when I very first got him and didn't have anything yet! I took this picture right after I brought him home. That day was pretty crazy, considering I met a stranger in a Wal-Mart parking lot to buy the tank from Craig's List... turned out to be a really nice guy who was a Principal at an elementary school in my town. Who knew!

Image
"What dis?"

Image
Basking for the first time. He wasn't shy even.

Image
Sleepy ballerina.

Image
"What are these things, mommy? I like them."

Image
First upgrades I made. Decorations mostly.

Image
Chilling with Buddha.

Image
Over saturated picture of him roaming. Haha. >_<

Image
Pretty much his current set-up, minus that twig.

Image
First ATBA and his current. I want to upgrade soon. I took out the astroturf because he kept playing with it and I didn't want him to choke on the strings or something.

Image
Enjoying his ATBA for the first time.

EDIT: Bonus! I forgot I made a YouTube video when I first upgraded. This is pretty much what he has now. http://youtu.be/O30jaPQzrYQ

And that's Tesla's year in review!
Thanks for being here for me everyone. I probably wouldn't have known how to adequately care for Tesla if it weren't for everyone on this forum! I've been busy with school and work lately, but thanks for helping me create a lifelong friendship with my little green friend. :mrgreen:

Tesla says thanks too. c:
He's definitely getting a special treat today.

Looks good! Any reason you didn't completely fill his tank?
I build acrylic ATBAs.

Rubi, it was mostly because I didn't have an ATBA at the time and I didn't want the light to burn him since it's MVB so I guess I was being silly. It's all good now since it's pretty much full now and I have that ATBA.
