Can he control the intensity of his attack? WAS it a warning? Does he actually love you, and so CHOSE not to kill you? Or is he just too little (or fat!) to be very good at the whole shocking thing yet. . .
So much we don't know about the mysterious Sparky and his motivations. He probably didn't kill me 'cause he realized he'd never get food again. :P Wonder if his fat acts as an insulator and dulls his electricity?
Oh Sparky, I do love how easy it is to catch you. Just scoop the net and voila. No chasing all over the tank like when I have to catch tetras.
Chesherca, they still won't eat pellets or flakes but I finally found that they love frozen spirulina brine shrimp. I feed pellets in the morning for the other fish but the frozen foods at night so at least they're eating something. Hopefully in time they'll start eating the pellets too. :) The floating water sprite seems to help them a lot.
Bekah, I'm thinking about putting the babies in the 20gal. Haha, definitely not with Sparky. He has pond snails that hitchhiked in on the anubias and he doesn't bother them.
Woke up, was not in the mood to change the 10gal again so I just dumped him back into his 55gal now that the temp dropped to 80. He gave me a very mild jolt when I reached in to grab his tunnel. "Quit messing with me, woman!"
HAHA! Forget coffee as the best thing to wake you up in the morning!!
