Yeaaaah, I'm not going in the water without Jeremy Wade.

I remember how surprised I was when I first learned piranha and neon tetras were related. Fish taxonomy is fascinating and confusing (quit changing the families around!!!).

It just occurred to me that since Sparky seems to be okay with snails, I can turn his tank into a snail tank! I've always wanted to get pink or red ramshorns but never had a place to put them. But, do ramshorns crossbreed with pond snails or trapdoor snails? Put enough cucumber slices in and they shouldn't mind that there are no plants, right?

Sparky, you may be getting your own snail farm soon. :D Maybe even some rabbit snails in the future? *runs off to aquabid even though she is broke*

Poor Sparky. I feel like a horrible electocat mom. Not only did I totally forget to feed him last night, I left his tank light on all day and all night. I swear when I went out this morning, his eyes were bugging. "Too . . . dang . . . bright . . ."

*on knees* Sorry Sparky, please forgive me!

Weird, weird, weird dream. I dreamt that I put Sparky and my koi into the swimming pool (it's an above-ground pool that is partially sunk in the ground) and I dreamt that somehow Sparky climbed out and was hopping down the sidewalk in the backyard and I had to use the pool net and a regular fish net to try and catch him. And then, inexplicably, I carried him into the house where he kept escaping and kept hopping all over the place and every time I caught him, he got loose and once he shocked me.

How an aquatic animal shaped like a sausage could HOP on land is beyond me.

Sparky was invading your dreams to punish you for his wakeful (and hungry) night O.o
I KNEW Sparky had mind powers!

Between the electric shocks and the mind powers, I definitely want to stay on Sparky's good side.

Hahaha! That's fantastic.

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Today, Sparky taught me a lesson: even if there is food left over in his tank, do not touch it. Tried to get an uneaten pellet out of his tunnel this morning like a good fishkeeper. He was "shockingly" clear that he wanted it left right where it was.

Sparky 3 Sakura 0

Also, Sparky will soon be getting his snail farm! I hope you like the color pink, Sparky. :)
