Well, it's that hateful time of year again: the time when Sparky becomes a boiled catfish. This year, I've been able to keep his temp stable at 82-85 F with every other day water changes (and here we are, in a huge drought!). But today, for some reason, his temp jumped from 85 at 3 in the afternoon to 91 F at 7:30 tonight! Poor Sparky! I was on my way to a fireworks display so all I could do was plop him in a 6 gal Rubbermaid. Originally, I planned to leave him there for the night but he was having trouble breathing with the warm water and no airstone so I did a massive 75% change on his tank at 10:30 PM and got the temp back to 82 F. It's supposed to be several degrees cooler starting tomorrow so hopefully his tank will stay stable. Curse this almost two-week long streak of 100+ temps!

I had so hoped that by this time he would be in a temp-controlled 200gal but alas, the City of Elk Grove conspires against him.

But seriously, this is one insanely hardy catfish. He shows no distress in temps as low as 65 F and temps as high as 90 F. The only time he showed any distress was when he didn't have proper oxygenation. Then his gills began moving more than usual.

Sparky, you amaze me as much as you make me feel guilty.

Poor Sparky, and poor YOU!!! *HUGS*

Hang in there, both of you! One of these days, you'll get all the permits and approvals and whatever it is that you need, and Sparky will have his castletank!!! ^.^

So I have a 29gal free and I'm at the LFS and they show me a little electric catfish just slightly longer than my pointer finger. Pics coming soon but wonder what I should name this baby?

I don't believe that Sparky could POSSIBLY have started his life out as such an adorable TINY thing!!!! HE IS SO FRIKKING CUTE!!! *SQUEEEEEEEEE*

You could name him Brownout - cuz' he has just a lil' spark!!! ^.^ I don't believe you POKED HIM!!! You are way too brave for me.

NOW THERE ARE TWO. Things are getting out of control. . . *giggles*

Congrats on the new lil' woobie, girl. Can't wait to watch him GROW!
