Come Visit Ernie the Giant Gourami

Woe is me, your pal Ernie. I’ve been temporarily displaced while Kenn and the good folks here at The Animal Store do a little renovating on my real home—the 1500-hundred-gallon tank at the back of the store. Like all home improvement projects, it seems like a better idea before you start. Check out the video below and you’ll see what I mean.

During the reno, I’m staying in a tiny (relatively) apartment of aquarium, but even though it’s a little small, there are some advantages. First of all, I’m right up at the front of the store. I get to greet all the customers as they come in, and I get to look out the window. Also, in this small place, there’s not competition for food and I get to meet people up close and personal. So stop by and say high. You can’t miss me. I’m the 27-year old gourami (the handsome one). Ask Kenn if you can feed me a cricket or grape—I love treats.
