As long as it doesn't slither under the sofa.

Why yes, indeed we do have Pearl's vote. That makes it 2-1. Sparky is a female!

ROFL! That seems like it was too easy! Maybe we should hang on, TazMan might want to have some say in this - the question of gender is HUGE!

In my defense, Sparky IS the thinnest electric catfish of all the photos and videos we've seen!

I do have to agree with Olympia. Most of the electocats I've seen in google have been rather plump (boyfriend thinks they are the funniest thing in the world). I vote Sparky as male.

Also, I know it's off-topic, but Olympia, have you looked into external heaters for your African oddballs tank?

No.. I already have a few small internals. I have 2 but might need one more to add up to the tank size. It needs to be warmer than I thought at first.

These.. external heaters.. are they expensive? Because I am broke.

At least the name Sparky goes either way. Sooo, it's 2-2. Sparky, you are a mystery to us all.

Wait, if Sparky is thin then . . . Those other cats must be real chubs!

LOL, ya I think Sparkles is a girl (see how easy *I* can adjust to calling her the proper gender).

And common, girls are better then boys. We are a lot smarter, understand the meaning of 'in-style' so much better and we are a lot tougher and less squeamish. Or at least the girls I know.
This actually happened in my class playing soccer. A guy got kicked and kept complain, I got a soccer ball in the face and my eye puffed up and contact almost fell out and I didnt cry or complain. Girls kick guys butt.

I have no idea what 'in style' means. . .
. . . unless it means SPARKLES!!!!

If *I* had a fish named Sparkles OR Sparky, I'd just end up calling it Sparks. Cuz' that's what I do. Princess ShimmerBlue is Shimz or Shimzy (because I. . . just. . . can't REMEMBER that we're pretending he's a girl all of the time so (s)he is kind of gender neutral as a fish right now, lol, Sparky even more!

We could just agree to call the aforementioned electric catfish Sparks and be done with it. It's gender-neutral, so we can all keep our opinions, neh?

(But I dunno. . . naming a creature that looks like ol' Sparks does. . . something as girly and CUTE as Sparkles. . . appeals to me ;)
