Default New siren!

So my lps has had some sirens in for a while, some uber-expensive southern dwarves, and a few lesser sirens. Had the tank set up for a while now, and yesterday i got one of the lessers. Right now he/she is in a ten gallon tank, as he/she is still a baby, however i'm not going to keep her in there permanently, just until she grows a little. I have a piece of wood in the tank to serve as a hidey spot, but she hasn't used it since i gave her some bloodworms. She's currently swimming around in the tank right now. Such a cool animal. I've read the caudata care sheet, along with some other resources around the web, and i understand the need to dig, but before any substrate is given i would like to see him/her poop a few times.

Now for what you all came for.. pictures! (excuse the crummy quality, the camera on my phone isn't the best....)

I admire your restraint, when I come across things like that I have to buy a whole bunch!
By the way, what's the collective noun for sirens? :p :p
