is Superfish and he has certainly lived up to his name! I got him
six years ago at a 4th of July festival. I won him for $1.00 in a
ping-pong ball toss game. He was less than an inch long then! When I
got him at first he was zooming around his little plastic bag so fast
that I just had to call him Superfish! I brought him home that night
(after watching some fire-works with him,) and put him in an old
five-gallon tank I had. He started growing about a month after I got him
and pretty soon I had to put him in a ten-gallon... then a twenty-gallon...
and finally, for his 4th birthday, he got a 55-gallon tank! By then he
was about eight inches long and had a special place in the household.
Today he's about nine inches long and quite a character! He recognizes me
as soon as I come into the room and he pesters me until I feed him!
He's pretty much done this since I got him, which probably explains
his size! Superfish is the only pet I've had that has lived up to his
name in every way!!!
