"floating sausage".. Coupled with his easter bunny candy eyes and we have quite a fish! lol
I'm glad Sparky likes the new food!

:3 Thanks, dbooknook. :)

Laki, me too. I would not have been happy if he had refused to eat $28 food with no returns.

He's so awesome, and really does look like a sausage XD

What species of electric eel is he? I've only ever seen this type before. Yours is much cuter lol

Wow. That's an electric eel. I would not mess with those guys, they pack an even bigger punch than electric catfish. They can even power Christmas tree lights.

Mine is scientifically called malapterurus (may be an extra ru in there, can't spell) electricus, or electric catfish. Definitely looks like a sausage. With silver beady eyes and a pouty mouth. :D

Wow. I wonder if I should mummify Sparky when his time comes? *strokes chin thoughtfully*

Haha, it's okay. You got up really early. o.O

Sparky won't come out of his tunnel for new pics. I'll have to ambush him later.

EDIT: By the way, Sparky, please don't get as big as that mummy.

Yeah.... that would be no bueno. I hope you stay small forever, Sparky.

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.

He's so cute when he's small! Haha, funny to call an 8" fish small. XD

Today, I tossed my fathead minnow in with Sparky. It was a freebie long ago and it's kind of mean. When it was in my 29, it would headbutt my dojos away from their food. So far, Sparky has ignored it. If he can learn to co-exist with other fish, I plan to put some angels in there. But if minnowboy goes missing, Sparky will be a loner.
