But would he play nice with the koi?

Yeah, water quality isn't an issue despite his 9 million snailmates. He's like quadruple filtered. I just feel so bad because he spends most of his time resting on his tail, propped up against the glass with his nose up. He'd have more room if I took out his mangrove root but then he might hate me. :/

I'll take more pics! Video too, if I can get it to upload properly to photobucket.

That said, this is Sparky. He might just do that anyway. To spite you. . . in his 500 gallon tank. ;)

Er... I dont think he would play nice with them. It might turn into a segregated tank if he did go in there. But he could go in another tub lol!

How to convince my father to set up another horse trough in the backyard.

He was mad at me tonight because I didn't get to feed him until 9:30 PM. Usually I feed him at 7 or so but I had to go out to meet someone who was buying a tank I had on craigslist. The guy said he'd kept electocats with an arowana and oscars. Huh.

We have a pic update!!!!

Here is a size comparison. That is a 10 1/4 inch ghost knife tunnel that he is next to.

But it's not the length, it's the girth that is alarming.

Sparky senses I'm up to something.

And I was. Time for Tickle Me Sparky!

He is looking alarmed now.

After that, I put his tunnel back in and told him he was a good boy. But I did finally confiscate his pipe as he was barely able to swim through it in his attempt to escape from me.

He's so squishy! Squishy and squishable! I gotta put the gloves on and do this more often.

Oh HOORAY FOR SPARKY!!!! *luffs* He really is a rotund little guy, isn't he?! *grins*

Yes! More often (with the gloves)! I'm already going to demand MORE pictures, since those were so adorable.
