Congrats! He's so cute. :D

Hello! I'm a former fishkeeper and bettafish.com-er with a rekindled interest in the betta hobby. I don't have any bettas currently, but I'm brushing up on my fishkeeping knowledge with the intention of eventually bringing home another finned friend. ^_^

I'm thinking of naming him Zappy. He spent all day inside his cichlid cave. I had to get a flashlight to make sure he was still in the tank. O.O

Sparky is just too cute! I do agree with the sausage analogy, but I compare him to a seal just with those little fins and chubby body! Your new little cat is just so adorable too! *faints from too much cuteness/staying up late to catch up with the journal*

Heeheee, so cute! Where is he living - is he in the same tank as ol' Sparkster?

I love the name! In my mind I see them as superheros - Sparky and his faithful sidekick Zaps, saving lives and dispensing electrocat justice, making this world a better place, one supervillan (and pellet) at a time ^.^

Does Zappy like the pelletses as much as his big brother does?

LOL. I'm afraid Sparky might mistake his tiny brother for a pellet so the little Zapster is in the 29 gallon. Big giant tank for a 3" fish and he spends 24/7 in the cichlid cave. So far I haven't attempted to feed Zap. Waiting for him to get hungry enough to eat the Ocean Nutrition Formula One pellets I'm gonna try on him. Sparky's pellets are too big for now.

Thinking about putting some zebra danios in the 29 to act as dither fish. Even though Zappy can put out a shock, I think he's small enough that they won't get hurt too bad and hopefully their activity will coax him out of hiding.

I should rename them Hot Dog and Little Links. o.O

Well, I was a meanie and I removed the cichlid cave so I could keep track of Zappy. So now he stuffs himself into a microscopic hole in the side of his fake decor and I keep thinking he's stuck. BUT, just when I was about to despair, he ate some bloodworms. Phew. I was afraid I was going to have to either return him or get some live blackworms. I told my mom that and she said "Do the worms have to go in the refrigerator?" "Yes." "Take him back."
