And my friend think I'm weird? I will never understand people who make me look normal, co-ordinated and quiet.

Olympia and Pearl,

Yeah, they usually are but then they break down into things that look like brick crumbles. Even with all that extra filtration and Kent's Nitrate Sponge in the Emperor 400, his nitrates still got up to 40.

It's funny. First I went to the ADF thread to ask about their poops, then I came here and asked about Sparky's poops. I work at a vet's office so I have to deal with A LOT of poops there, I guess I'm starting to get an appreciation for it?!

... Or is that I'm saying poops?

Sooo, Sparky eats pellets and poops out pellets, pretty much?

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

Pooooooor Sparky! Maybe. . . just maybe this'll teach him that he LOVES you! Have you considered putting him near one of the Betta tanks? Perhaps he should watch how they dance for their pellets? We KNOW he dances when nobody is watching - I wanna see him dance for his supper! Can you imagine? Sparky? Doing the Betta Wiggle!? Ooooh, yeah.

You should do that, just as an experiment. Although mine jump (and have died because of that) and i dont think you want to pick up an electric catfish.

Betta wiggle? OMG i seem so normal now!

I feel it may be imperative at this point that we define the word "normal." I just want to be clear. . .

I own a fish that could shock me potentially into a coma. I'm definitely not normal.

Dancing sausage . . . *visions of Sparky doing the betta wiggle*

I wonder if you could train him to do that fish school thing where they swim through hoops. Size extra large please.

I'd have to use a needlepoint hoop or something huge. :D And he'd probably still get stuck. *halfway through* "I'm bored. Think I'll just stop here for now."
