:) Yes, I do. I actually haven't even used the thick, shoulder-length gloves I bought. I'm just really careful to work in a different part of the tank than he's in. And he's not aggressive. It's not like he charges out of his tunnel and tries to zap my hand.

Poor minnow.

But ROFL when I read sparky's line, I read it with the voice of pinnochio from the shrek movies. xD

What an adorably cool (and borderline frightening) little friend you have there! I love him! I think you'll be having quite a bit of fun learning about your new electrically charged buddy. . . poor minnow!

Teeney, haha. :D

Chesherca, thanks. :) I do feel sorry for the minnow. Things looked like they were going so well. But I was going to have to take it to a pet store, where it almost certainly would have gone straight into the feeder fish tank so I guess the end was the same. :(

The irony is after I got the minnow out of the tank with the black gravel and into a tank with sand, it lightened up and started to look really pretty.

Yay! Go minnow and 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.

Sparky - 1

Minnow - 0

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I'm confused, is the minnow dead, or just in shock?

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

:( Unfortunately, the poor minnow did die. I feel really bad about that.

So something interesting happened when I went to feed Sparky. I plopped in his giant sinking wafers and they fell down between his tunnel and the side of the tank. I thought he might have trouble getting to them so I reached in to move them and he charged out of his tunnel and headbutted my hand.

Now the funny thing is I don't know if he even shocked me or if he just headbutted me. If he did shock me, it was so light I didn't feel it. Or, if I did feel it, I didn't even recognize it as a shock. Weird.

*eyes hand going for the food* "Get your hand away from mah food, woman!"

He then proceeded to snarf his food down and completely ignore me while I reached in again to fix the heater that he knocked out of its holder. o.O

I don't get this fish.
