Bekah,

Sweet potato, sausage, hot dogs, twix candy bars . . . Mmmmm.

If I tried to fry the Sparkster, I'd end up being the one sizzling. o.O *ZZZZTTTT*

I bet, if you put him in the proper environment, he could microwave HIMSELF! The perfect combination of fast food and home-cookin'

You could make a fortune. . .

Well, Sparky just had an emergency change of habitat. As I went to feed him tonight, I saw that his water had gotten up to 90 F! Poor guy looked like a limp . . . well, sausage. It's 9:30 here, too dark to do a water change and put in cooler water so I transferred him to the 6 gallon Rubbermaid in the rec room. He is not happy about this and let me know about it. I could feel the water tingling as I chased him around trying to catch him. Tomorrow, I'll change the water in both his tank and the "coldwater" community and put in cooler hose water. It's only supposed to be 92 tomorrow, not 105, so it shouldn't get quite that warm. Poor Sparky!

Oh nos! In the last picture he's like "Hey lady, this is like the petstore. I should like report you or something."*zaps* "not working"

I currently own a male betta fish, a female betta fish, two eastern painted turtles, one western painted turtle, one Chinese dwarf hamster, and a whole load of guppies.

POOR SPARKY!!! But. . . AWWW! Great picture! It is so super COOL that you could feel the water tingling! Yay that it means he can't kill you (VERY nice to know - you MUST have been sooooo nervous! You're a BRAVE lady!) But boo that he was so stressed by it. Two steps forward, one step back for the Sparkster.

You are one brave lady for reaching your hand in there! After getting shocked by a backpack electroshocker (google for pictures), I have a very healthy respect for electricity and water. I'm glad Sparky is safe (if a little grumpy). Hope your heat spell breaks soon! We've finally gotten a break here on the east coast.

Didnt it get to like 35C? That just to hot to do anything beside nap in front of the air conditioning.

OMG the water tingling!! Wonder what would have happened if you touched him. Sakura sausage! (not suggesting that you are a sausage :p)
That is insane!! I wonder how many guys would of put there hands in there??
