DUUUUUUDE, you know that's EXACTLY what I thought the moment I read the word Princess!!? *giggle* My poor little girl is still INSISTENT that poor fish is a she - she gently corrects me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Silly little goose. But Princess Sparkle would probably EAT Princess ShimmerBlue, so . . . yeah, maybe we should stick to pen-pals ;)


Sakura! YES! UPDATE those albums!!! You gonna put Ol' Sparkyboy in the cat album? Just for a giggle? I would ;) Does your camera have a cord? Maybe you could plug it in and leave it. . . that'd be a lot of footage to scan through, lol, but to see him breakdancing it'd totally be worth it. Maybe he just . . . doesn't. Maybe he's the calmest fish, ever. What are the like in the wild? I mean. . . electric catfish. . . he probably IS wild-caught, don't you think? *wonders about the mysterious Sparky*

My first betta when I was in 3rd grade was a red veiltail named Princess Rose.

Maybe Sparky waltzes? (insert "Blue Danube" here) He keeps time with his whiskers.

I'm 99% sure he's wild-caught because as far as I know electric catfish don't breed in captivity. They'd need a big tank for that, like a 1000gal or more. Poor guy. Snatched out of his natural habitat just to spend months on end in a cramped tank at a pet store.

But NOW he has YOU! AND PELLETS! And you and pellets are, like, FANTASTICALLY wonderful and happy in every way! I just got my very first batch of wild-caught fish and it really blows my mind to think that they were free swimming in a river just, like, a minute ago! At least Sparky has taken a step UP by coming home with you. I'm mad at that fish shop. . .

If *I* had whiskers, I'd totally keep time with them. And waltz. . . cuz' why wouldn't you?!

Heheheeh. I remember your first Sparky videos were of him going crazy, I think that's what he's like when you're not around.

Haha! When I went to feed the tank beneath him, he was laying with his back to the world. Only way I knew he was still alive was every now and then he'd just sort of bob a little. He really wants me to believe he's just a harmless sausage.

BECAUSE HE ISSSSS! A very SWEET harmless ELECTRIC sausage! *hugs Sparky (with rubber boots on)* Do you think he came from a river near you? Obviously, I know nothing about electric catfish - but they're adorable and fascinating. . .and TUBBY!

Breaking news- electric catfish swarm the rivers of California. Local fish shops taking advantage of this and selling them.
Heh. Aren't they from like Africa?

I think they are from Africa. If I ever saw one in our waters I'd be surprised right out of my skin. For one thing, Sacramento water is COLD. o.O

I just caught Sparky in the very act of swimming when I went out to the garage to get something. The moment he saw me, he plopped to the ground and pretended he was a log.
