Y'know. . . I really DO think Sparky is a girl... I randomly read info on electric catfish, and keep running into the information that MALES are more SLENDER. Slender... our Sparky is not. Of course, this IS in comparison, and so I suppose we're no more ahead than we were before without a pair!

Sometimes when Sparky swims up the glass with his stomach showing to me, I sorta . . . look. But I can't tell. At one point, I thought for sure he was a male but the next time, I wasn't so sure. Sorry for invading your privacy, Sparky!

He looks as fat as the zoo catfish.. Email the zoo and ask the gender of their catfish! xD

I could. I wonder . . . all I need is a little diagram of the differences and I could probably tell the next time Sparky swims up the glass.

Do the cat try ot get at the tank on the floor? My cat drank from my fish tank when I had it off to change the filter. And she used to sleep on it. Thats the only time I really get mad at her . . . then give her the cold shoulder for a bit. Little rodent. :p

That is one fat fish! He even has the silly grin too! Wheee, I love electric catfish!

As my mom put it, they're so ugly they're cute and so boring they're interesting.
