I think he ate some of the garlic-soaked beefheart. Not sure. I went to put it near him but it immediately got caught on the current and a lot went straight into the filter. Strangely enough, his favorite food seems to be sinking carnivore pellets. I dropped two more in and he darted . . . well, waddled out and snarfed them up before hiding in his tunnel again. I'm not sure how healthy that is for him, though. Everything I've read says meaty, chunky carnivore foods are their faves. Sparky, you're weird.

Maybe he's trying to show you he won't bite you and you can pet him!
"Look ma! All I eat is these pellets!"

Yeah, he doesn't eat his owner raw. He has to fry her first. o.O

It's official. This little weirdo won't eat anything but sinking pellets. Since the Hikari Sinking Carnivore Pellets are quite small, I went to my LFS and picked up a bag of Hikari Massivore Nuggets for him. He had better eat those because they cost $28 a bag and no returns. -__- The bag says each nuggest is the equivalent of a feeder fish so hopefully it's a little more nutritious for him than the small pellets. Last night, he got so excited he was swimming up to meet my hand as I was putting them in. I almost started to handfeed him before I remembered what he was.

Probably no worse than a shock from an electroshocker powered by two car batteries. When I was surveying streams in Arkansas I yelled "off" to the guy working the shocker, but he didn't hear it. My whole arm got a nice shock as I fell on my butt. Graceful and fried :P

I'm really glad you found something he likes. He even seems to be warming up to you ^-^

:) I hope he's warming up to me. He's such an atypical fellow. I heard they like darkness 'cause they're nocturnal so I keep his tank light off and he stays in a corner or in his tunnels. But when I do turn it on, he swims all over the place.

EDIT: One of these days, I probably will touch him just to get it over with. The suspense is killing me.

:D Thanks, Bekah. :D

Hehe, I wish he'd move around more so I could take more video. Maybe tomorrow I'll try to catch him eating his new expensive pellets.
