I wonder if Sparky IS a female because he's so round. I dunno if I could adjust to that, I'm so used to him being a him.

Believe me, if I can adjust to calling my daughter's beautiful MALE Betta PRINCESS, you can adjust to the ol' Sparkster being a girl, too!

True, I suppose I can. *fondly remembers Princess Rose, my first betta*

So, poll time. Who thinks Sparky is a girl?

Oooh! Oh! I do! I do! *waves hand*

ETA: This is based on no evidence whatsoever, I just want his full name to be SPARKLES! Because an ELECTRIC catfish named Sparkles is OMG! ROFL! AWESOME!

Chesherca. So we have one vote for Miss Sparkles. :D

Did his water change. It's 105 so at least that got his water temp down to 81 F. I don't think his heater has kicked in once since I got him. Which is good because I still have to get a heater guard for it. I heard these guys can easily burn themselves.

"I'm sorry guys, Sparkles had an accident with the curling iron, er, heater today . . ."

Heater guard. I think I may need to look into those too.


NO. Sparky is a BOY. I refuse to believe otherwise!

And we have a vote for Mr. Sparky. Uh oh . . . who wants to be a tiebreaker?

Ooh, right, your ropefish and bichir will probably need them.

I hear rope fish love burning themselves on heaters.
They seem to be the biggest pain in the butt fish ever, actually. "Any hole 1/4" or bigger must be covered." THAT small?! HOB filters are not recommended for them either.

Oh you are going to have so much fun with your guys, haha! Well, I did hear they were exquisite escape artists. The good news is at least if they get loose, they'll live for a while. o.O
