There are many ways to involve your hobby in the upcoming holidays: you can give a fish tank as a gift or decorate your tank for the holiday, but did you ever think of having a fish-powered Christmas tree?
The Living Planet Aquarium in Salt Lake City, Utah did just that by connecting the electric eel display to a Christmas tree with four strands of colored lights that flash whenever the eel moves (thereby discharging electricity). Of course, electric eels are completely inappropriate for the home aquarium, and can deliver quite a shock to any unsuspecting individual in the water with them, but they do their job well in the aquarium.
