Maybe they latched onto the roof of his mouth and he actually DID shock himself, because. . . it was the only way to get them out! Poor unsuspecting Sparky. . . nomnomnomnomWTH?!

Now those are some GIRLY snails, for sure. Before too long there will be pillow talk and hair curlers, and poor Sparky will finally get his glam makeover!

I'm still half-convinced Sparky is a Sparkina so maybe (s)he wouldn't mind a glam makeover and some girl chat.

So pink!

The foot is actually pink/red and the shell is clear.

Some of them are floating, all caught up in the filter current. I can see their little antennae waving as they spin around. "Help meeeeeeeee! Gonnna be siiiiiiiick!"

Sparky got his first worm today! My dad was getting ready to plant some flowers and I had him put a worm he dug up in Sparky's tank. :) Sparky touched it first, then jerked away, but after a few minutes he suddenly went SNARF!

Looks like I may need to get some bait for a special treat, eh? But should I be worried about parasites?

Haha, that's awesome! Girl, where is your video camera when you need it!? I have no idea about parasites, I worry about everything anyway. Let me know what info you dig up on this, I've read that my ADF would enjoy some chopped worms *BLEGH* but I've always been too nervous to even go there. . .

I wasn't sure he was even going to eat it so I was like, enh, not gonna wait around. Turned to leave and that's when I saw him make his move. He sucks more than a Dyson. Just "whoooooosh" and the food disappears and all you see is his silly little grin.

I'll look into seeing if bait is a carrier for parasites. I don't know. I never really thought about it before.

I don't think something from the ground has a high chance of infection something from the water.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I don't think so either but just want to make sure since, being scaleless, he'd be hard to treat with meds. He was a lot more active tonight too, when I went to feed him his regular food. Chugging along all over the tank. :)

Heehee... WORM POWER!!! Glad to hear he was having such a wonderful evening - he really needed a protein shake . . . of course this means that YOU get to do what you've been avoiding thus far - and feed worms! IK!

I think that the worries with earth worms are less to do with parasites and more with contamination from chemicals and ferts that could be in the ground. Could be wrong though. . .
