Haha, 6 of my 8 cats are on the pudgy side. One is skinny because she is old and had some teeth pulled and the other is skinny because he is super-duper hyper and runs all over like a sprinter. The rest are ploppers who lay around a lot.

Sparky seems to be doing all right back in his home. The temp is about 83 and I probably should do a water change or at least top off the several inches of evaporated water buuuut . . . feeling lazy. Sorry Sparks.

The Sparkster managed to break off the filter intake tube again and get it lodged inside his tunnel. I thought I was seeing an awful lot of him lately. Then I saw this big black blob in his tunnel. How he maneuvered it into the tunnel is beyond me, it's a big tube.

The electric catfish at my other LFS is still there. Either that one is underfed or it's a male and Sparky's a female. Dunno. That one doesn't have Sparky's endearing "paunch." Oh Spark, I wish you would get along with your own kind so I could get this one too.

Awww. Poor baby, send him to me!

Hahah, I love this fish. Breaking of the intake, pssh, seen it before. Pushing it into his tunnel? Genius. He keeps things fresh.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

I put a piece of small driftwood in for him to play with but he seems to have gotten bored with it. Maybe I should put a golf ball in for him to roll around.

One of my LFS (I have 3) has a mostly full-grown redhook silver dollar. I keep wanting to get it to see if it would do okay with Sparky but $16.99 is a lot for a potentially fried fish.

I'd be worried about a golf ball being swallowed. Maybe a med/large beach ball?

Could you build him a PVC pipe maze? Kinda like a fish version of those huge play rooms for kids.

Izzy, you're right. Now that I think about the size of his mouth, a golf ball isn't nearly big enough. Maybe a croquet ball.

Haha, a maze. That would actually be pretty cool but then I'd probably never see the little dude. I kinda liked it when he had the intake tube in his tunnel so he was out in the open.
