Hahaha! Reminds me of something I saw at my Petsmart a few days ago. They had a big fancy tail goldfish in a tank with a bunch of guppies and I guess it got really hungry and it snatched up one of the guppies and all that was left was a little tail sticking out of the goldfish's mouth and it just swam around the tank sucking on the guppy like is was the new big thing. ;D

found this thread and had to post this haha. so i sold my sister one of my tanks with some easy beginner fish to get her started and shes been doing really well with it. she has her tank on a stand and has the fish food under the tank in a closed cabinet. one day her husky opened the cabinet and took the fish food out, broke it open, spread it all over the living room and ate a bunch of it!!! and now she has done this three times lol three brand new cans of tetra flakes. she keeps trying to put them in a different spot but her dog just keeps getting to it lol who would have thought dogs love fish food so much!!

A couple years ago my betta died and when I was going to flush it it jumped right out of the net! But really it was dead, all the color was gone, ragged fins and a loses eye! He was out into a hospital tank even though his eyes where out. He died a day later

I don't know if this counts as a fish story, but here goes.

Last Halloween, my cousins came over so I could do their makeup (it's another favored hobby of mine) and one of my cousins wanted to be...a goldfish. I literally had to go to my brothers house to look at his goldfish and try replicate goldfish scales..she found a fish like costume with already orange scales so I had to make her face and neck blend into the costume (hard to explain). We bought tons of orange body paint that night. Lots of mess too. Lol never again.

This doesn't involve fish but..my cat likes the smell of fish flakes. Whenever I feed my fish she instantly comes and sniffs the container. She doesn't eat it though, thankfully. Lol

OMEGA ONE and NLS have much better nutritional values for huskys!

Last night I had two Red Cherry shrimp fighting over the same piece of food pellet for about 5 minutes. One finally gave up and wandered off and picked up one of the other pieces lying on the sand about an inch away.

Then the Mystery Snail came through and broke up the feeding frenzy for a while, till it got it's fill and slithered off. Then the shrimp returned to their feast.

not really a funny story, more a stupid comment by an employee at a lfs: some fish (namely corys) eat poop

I had a sixline wrasse jump out of the tank. My dog, a boxer mix, with a significant underbite, scoops it up (she can hold crickets in her mouth gently enough to not hurt them) and runs off to play with it. we chased her for a good while, the wrasse was put back in the tank, but had unfortunately been out of the water too long.
