Yea. Because when a fish sees a sausage, it creeps up closer to try and eat it, and then ZAP. It's dinner. Like an angler fish but he just uses his whole body. Sausage mode and log mode look exactly the same to us- but fish see them differently.

Looking at videos on YouTube. . . and pictures. Such a strange creature. . . especially when compared to your betta brigade! Now for something completely different, lol! I like him. . .and yours isn't the ONLY one with a chubby stummy!

Can you imagine if someone read this while debating whether they should get an electric catfish?

Haha! They'd be SOLD for sure. . . I love Sparky - over there. I don't think he's my kind of fishy, even though he's adorable! My fish like to nibble on me when my hands are in the water, but I draw the line at, like, POSSIBLE DEATH and stuff ;) He is AWFULLY cute and surprisingly loveable, though. . . hmmmmmm. . .

Sakura. . . you seriously HAVE to leave that video cam going and leave the room! I'm so CURIOUS!

And syrup to go with it.

Just reading on the web about people who successfully keep their electric cats with other fish. The key, it seems, is a very big tank. Sadly, Sparky's 55gal is not big enough. Hopefully one day soon I can upgrade. A 180gal with an oscar or other big cichlid and Sparky!
