Can he control the intensity of his attack? WAS it a warning? Does he actually love you, and so CHOSE not to kill you? Or is he just too little (or fat!) to be very good at the whole shocking thing yet. . .

So much we don't know about the mysterious Sparky and his motivations. He probably didn't kill me 'cause he realized he'd never get food again. :P Wonder if his fat acts as an insulator and dulls his electricity?

Oh Sparky, I do love how easy it is to catch you. Just scoop the net and voila. No chasing all over the tank like when I have to catch tetras.

LOL! I was wondering the same thing about that glorious chub. ;)

Speaking of Tetra. . .and other such small fishies - are your other newbies eating yet?

Chesherca, they still won't eat pellets or flakes but I finally found that they love frozen spirulina brine shrimp. I feed pellets in the morning for the other fish but the frozen foods at night so at least they're eating something. Hopefully in time they'll start eating the pellets too. :) The floating water sprite seems to help them a lot.

Bekah, I'm thinking about putting the babies in the 20gal. Haha, definitely not with Sparky. He has pond snails that hitchhiked in on the anubias and he doesn't bother them.

I'm SO glad to hear that you've got them eating something, and that they're starting to settle in! Little troublemakers!!!

Sparky decided to celebrate being back in his own tank by breaking the filter intake off again. Oh Sparky.
