If it lived many more years, maybe there was something to it! Maybe just kept infection down?

I don't think I would feel safe putting aspirin in my tanks...

Oh I never would either! I have a hard time putting anything but prime in my tanks. Just curious what the belief was and why they did that. How does it change the water chemistry?

When I was first stocking my tank my two year old was looking at something in a petsmart tank when all of a sudden a baby Dempsey hopped out and landed on his shoe. He freaked out and was getting ready to squish it screaming BUG! BUG!! lol!
Off topic, but speaking of fish on the floor it reminded me.
Edit-wanted to add of course I stopped him from squishing it lol!

I was cleaning my aquarium when my baby koi decided to stay in the exact spot the python siphon was about to be placed. After three minutes, I noticed him and had to yank the siphon off. He ended up losing his tail.

used to have a couple of hatchets and before I knew they were jumpers, had one jump while I was cleaning the tank...He landed on the wall, like he jumped onto a velcro wall or something it was crazy...I freaked out, slowly and carefully peeled him off and put him back in the tank real quick. It was so funny after the fact though

I used to have my male Bettas in individual 1g fish bowls, I changed the substrate in Simon's bowl to large rocks instead if gravel. I put everything together, put him back in there & go about my business. An hour so later I heard a noise, look over at his bowl & don't see him, I walk over, look in NO Simon, he's not on the floor, he's not on the table, I think did he jump out & one of the dogs ate him? Then I see this smidge if color on the bottom of the bowl laying flat UNDER THE ROCKS!
