Maybe if he slims down he'll be less self conscious and let you check! xD

Oh Sparky, we are making a fool of you.

This MUST be the SILLIEST thread I've ever seen. . .

So... are electricats SUPPOSED to have giant stummies? Or is s/he *ACTUALLY* tubby? From the way you described the conditions he was kept in, he has more room to actually swim now than he ever has. . . so maybe he actually NEEDS his aerobics. And WILL slim down - as he grows, of course. Like pulling a taffy at both ends ;) I suspect the filter intake shall be forever out of his reach, poor Sparks! Does he like his white PVC pipe any better yet? I think we need new pics. . . or vids. It's been, like, a DAY! I'm going through Sparky withdraws ;)

:D Sparky is hard to take pics of. When I get the camera out, he goes into his tunnel and makes fishy faces at me. I need to set up a surveillance camera and ambush him. He loves the turtle tunnel the best but I do see him in his white pipe every now and then.

I think mostly he's just happy he can actually swim around, like you said. You're right, he probably does need exercise. What a tubbo. And even now I'm not sure how much I should be feeding him. At the moment, he gets 4 Hikari Massivore Nuggets a day but that feels like too little. And yet, he's so fat! *is confused*

There is just something about him which makes you fall in love with him/her/it

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

I know, right? I still haven't pinned down what it is though. He can shock you if you touch him, he's a fussy eater and poos a lot, he's rather uhm . . . homely, he hides all the time, and he won't have tankmates. So why do I just adore this fish? XD

It's the cute eyes and the sausage/sweet potato body :)

He's got the dumbest look on his face, everything he does just seems comical. xD Those bright blue eyes, those whiskers.
Or maybe it's the fact that we were all like "omg he's such a hazard WEAR GLOVES SAKURA" and freaking out, and it turns out he's just a rolly polly sausage fish.
