The tank has been cleaned and filled. His PVC pipe tunnel is floating so I may either have to weight it down with rocks (my dad wanted to use a heavy metal rod
) or just scrap it altogether and get him a fake log. And in case anyone ever is interested, Marineland Emperor 400 power filters are both freakin' huge and freakin' loud. Seriously, the thing wouldn't fit in the cutout in the hood. Had to cut off extra.
Part of me wonders what would happen if I put a knifefish or an elephantnose in with him, as they are both capable of weak electrical fields. Not that I will, of course.
I thought so!
I like going there, its like a fish warehouse, though I will agree with you that their fishkeeping does need an upgrade.
Im glad you got him, I'd look at him everytime I went and debated on getting him or not for the same reason you did. I'm just happy you saved me from having to explain to my bf why I would bring him home. I've already used the "I wanted to save him" excuse far to many times XD
As an interesting note, the head of electric catfish are positively charged and the tails are negatively charged. Thought that was neat X)
