actually i only got shocked once and it was from my ecat once when he was about 7'' when i was hand feeding it, it didnt even hurt but it was a hell of a surprise, when ever i lifted up its wooden caveto clean, it just swam away to hide in the corner
so are your ecats in the same tank with the p's? mine is and at first his tail got nipped. then it grew back, and now it doesnt get nipped anymore. the gang learned their lesson. i hope. he even swims out and to the surface to get his share of the meals.
lol thats exactly how my ecat attacked a fancy guppy(and died from it). scared her, and got too close to Saus' tail. he pulled a hard u-turn and gripped her side, shocked the hell out of her. and down under his rock they went. when i lifted the rock half her body was in his mouth. this was at 4am. just like on the Discovery channel. so sweet.
at least you got to take a pic. i couldnt take my eye off of them. i was like ooh ahh wow.
*i thought Saus was a perfect name for the ecat. plus i think he's germany, lol jk.
