Pearl and Chesherca,

And Pearl, totally. I'd like to see a guy go through childbirth without whining or begging for pain meds.

I guess we can each call him what we think he is and we'll still know who we're talking about. :)

Shimzy, haha. :D

Pearl, Yes, if you called him that on this thread, I'd probably eventually figure it out. *now wishes Sparky was purple*

I dunno about Sakura, but *I* totally would, and this thread is not *quite* silly enough already. . . ?

Actually. . . a water main broke down the street from me, and I don't have any water to MAKE coffee with right now since you asked. I still have no ideas about fashion, but Sparkz is trending!

Oh no, this thread can never be too silly with Sparky involved. :)

Well, it looks like the heat wave is going to continue for some time so I went to Wal-Mart and got Sparky a summer home. As long as his water temp keeps getting to 85 F and above, he'll have to stay in his 27gal Rubbermaid in the house. Unfortunately, the downside is the only filter I could use with it is rated for a 10gal max. -____- Sorry, Sparkers, not gonna buy an expensive internal filter for a Rubbermaid.

So, here's a vid of him. It's kinda short because my mom and dad were talking at each other. I also felt bad because I couldn't really properly acclimate him because the tanks were in different places so the best I could do was lower him really slowly into the new water. I was so afraid he'd get temperature shock but he's buzzing around right now so I guess he's okay.

I hope so too, for his sake. He's such a good sport about it, as far as I can tell. His tub is even on a rolling cart so I can roll it to the back door and drain the water out on the deck.

Of all the fish you could be carrying around all over the place.. you choose an ELECTRIC fish.
