Amp The Electric Eel is just what his name says. He is an electric eel that drifts around the tank. After some time, he will be charged. Clicking on Amp will charge him up even more, until he releases the charge, electrocuting all guppies in the tank, turning them into diamonds. After which, a new guppy will be given to you as a replacement for the guppies lost (except in Virtual Tank in which he only kills the non-store bought guppies).
Amp is a good way to earn money in the later part of the game. Pairing him with Angie and Prego can give you over 4000$ in one shock. If 4 pets can be brought, bring Presto along as a second Angie to save more of the fishes. This strategy is recomended in Challenge Mode bacause of constant price increasement.
Rumors have been circulating for years now that some companies have developed a way to make Amp turn water to diamonds. Conspiracy theorists believe that it is simply the interests of the greedy diamond lobby that have prevented this research to become available to the general public. Amp was closed-mouthed on the subject.
