Just a quick update on the Spooky Fish situation. Apparently, the thermometer is now taking up residence inside the log, and all attempts to remove said thermometer are being thwarted by the thermometer's return under the log (here's a visual for all of you playing at home).
And, just so you know, all attempts to try to turn up any fish psychology on this have gone unanswered. Just try to search Google for how Chinese Algae Eaters "get it on". Apparently seeing these fish procreate is akin to seeing Bigfoot dining at Denny's.
More amateur National Geographic as the story unfolds.
