Aquarium fish stories

Does any one have any weird, funny, or crazy fish stories? A family friend thought that his betta was a bug when it jumped out of the tank and hit it over the head with a broom. It survived.

I bought some new fish and as I was floating the bags one of my male guppies must have jumped out. I hadn't noticed him missing till about half hour after releasing the new fish. Found him on floor still moving. Popped him back in and he was fine still swimming today. Lucky my 2 cats didn't get him

Yeah this is a painful memory, but happy ending... I was a little kid about ten or twelve maybe and was asked to feed two goldfish while the neighbors were on vacation. The first few days went fine and I must have forgotten to close the lid because on he third day, I looked in he tank and only saw one fish!

I looked all around and was totally perplexed, I looked literally on every surface for what felt like an hour until I looked way under the dresser and found the goldfish looking dry and fuzzy, a goner for sure. I plopped him in the tank a moment later. He kinda sank at first but he was fine the next day!

I never told the neighbors, but I always asked about "the fishies" and he kept on living! These days I still close the lid on my Betta tank.

When I had glass catfish there was one who constantly kept knocking himself out on the glass he was really skittish, we kept finding him lying on his side on the gravel out cold then he would get up & go & join the rest, poor wee guy!
