Visitors to the Tennessee Aquarium may be shocked to learn that an electric eel named Miguel Wattson is lighting up a Christmas tree.

A special system connected to Miguel's tank enables his shocks to power strands of lights on a nearby tree, according to a news release.

The aquarium should hook him up to power playing a recording by Electric Light Orchestra! They’d need an entire...orchestra...of eels, though.

Water is conductor, so just stick some wire into water, and connect to lights. Someone get the eel to keep shocking the water.
