I'm not quite as brave as you think. After I got him in the Rubbermaid and realized how POed he was, I had to reach in to get his tunnel out. It was too long so we were going to saw a few inches off. I put on the rubber gloves for the first time. XD Haha, he kept trying to swim into it even as I lifted it up out of the water.

The water temp has gone down to 83 F so I went ahead and put him back in his tank. He waggled his whiskers at me a lot and I'm pretty sure he was saying, "I will so get you for this, lady."

Try more like 40C. It's been brutal. Too hot to do anything but sleep in the basement. Thank goodness it's finally broken.

Glad to hear Sparky is back (and obviously plotting his revenge ).

When I went to feed the tank below his tonight, he came to the front of the glass and waggled his whiskers a lot. Somehow, he reminded me of Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars when he shoots lightning from his fingers. Even after I did a 50% change on his tank, the temp only went down to 80 and now it's back up to 82. Fortunately, they are tropical fishies who like warm water.

NOES!!! He's not plotting his revenge! Sparky is not evil! You've got it all wrong. . . he's saying thank you for putting him back in his nice tank with nummy pellets to eat and apologizing for trying to zap you. . . he didn't MEAN to, really. . . the heat made him grumpy. I understand, it makes me grumpy, too - and I don't even have whiskers! (like that made sense)

Awwww, Sparky's second biggest fan. :D Yes, the heat probably did make him grumpy. At least he didn't charge my hand again. I love Sparky's waggly whiskers!

Sparky's just a big dopey lump. I don't think he has evil in his body. Just electricity that is oh so hard to control sometimes. :D

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
