Funny fish stories?

I remember my grandpa telling me about when my mom and aunt were kids he bought them a goldfish in a little bowl and one day it jumped out. It was completely dried out and had been dead on the counter for awhile. However, he grabbed it by the tail and ran it under the sink face down and it suddenly came back to life! He put it back in the bowl and it continued to live for a good while afterwords!

Anybody else have funny or interesting fish stories? Please share!

Not quite as good/sad as the betta story. I have a simes algae eater it is about 6 inches long, while trying to net him he got spooked (these fish are extremely spookable) and jumped a good 4 feet across my room and landed right in a paper towel roll. After some screaming and such I finally got the poor little guy back in the tank

A friend of mine told me a story about her Betta that is pretty funny. She said that she was cleaning out the tank when spilled some water on the floor I think and the fish jumped out of the net. She looked and looked for the fish but couldn't find it anywhere. After about a few days she was cleaning out under some Seward and there on the floor under them was the Betta lying in a little puddle of water. It was still alive and She put it back in the tank and it was fine.

A family friend had a betta that jumped out at night. In the morning, someone thought it was a bug and started hitting the betta with a broom until he noticed the tank was empty and it was the betta. The fish did survive luckily.

I saw one of my goldfish once with an oversized pice of gravel in his mouth. He was sucking on it. when I came to the tank he got surprised and the piece hit the glass and fell off. Laughed at that. Oh and that one time I came up to my tank and the Molly got scared and darted right into the glass. Now THAT was funny.

The very first time I did the whole feed him a pea thing, I put as little as possible in the tank and had to hold it up because it would've sank and he wouldn't have eaten it. So I hold the piece and my Betta looks at it skeptically. Then slowly swims up and nibbles on it. Then just jets away from it while he swallows and then he goes to the other side of the tank and stays there for a moment and then goes. As fast as can and collides with my fingers, taking the whole pea out of my hand and putting it all in his mouth. He was super shakin up because of the collision but when I realizes that the ENTIRE piece of pea is in his mouth he just devours it. Soooo funny. Couldn't stop laughing.
