With a really big net. Although this time it was easy. He swam into his PVC pipe so I just scooped the pipe up, tipped him out into the net, and carted him on in.

Not this time, thank goodness. This time it's day so he's all sleepy. Last time, it was night and he was wide awake and waiting for his food.

Or just give him lots of food so he is to fat to electrocute you.
He heavy when you pick him up? I've only have goldfish and bettas.

He weighs maybe as much as a full soda can? He looks so slimy and squishy when he is out of water. I just want to poke his fat belly.

Tempted to leave him in the 10gal, he's so much more active. But alas, when it cools down, back out to his 55 he goes.

Love your avatar. :D

Thanks Sakura, she has some serious issues. And she over weight just like Sparky. 12 pounds.

I'm not sure if he's stressed or what. He's so mysterious. But he's been scootching along in his tiny tank all day. Comes out of his tunnel to look at me when I walk by and everything.

Pearl, one of my cats ate the corner off a wooden windowsill.

He's pacing like a caged animal! How dare you put him in 10 gallons? Or, maybe he's agoraphobic so being in a tiny tank makes him feel safe.

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

Because the 15gals would be too heavy for the table. -___- Sparky, I'll never understand you.

More likely, he just realizes that now I see him a lot more often so he's bugging for food. "Oh, there she is! Foood?" Ten minutes later. "Hi again! Fooooood?" Later that evening. "Where ya been? Fooooood?"
