According to a report in The Guardian, through a special system connected to the eel's tank the nearby Christmas tree lights up when he produces natural shocks while looking for food or when he is excited. According to the publication, the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga hopes that the unique initiative brings in appreciation for the electric eel, which are otherwise feared.
