Freaky Freaks of Fishy Nature

Leave it to my house to have neurotic fish. I'm not kidding.

First, the tank went cloudy when my friend was here. She witnessed the entire bizarre episode where the tank got so cloudy all of a sudden, the f***ing fish were nearly bumping into each other.

So I got it cleaned out, crystal clear, and I kid you not, the fish were going nuts. They were doing some sort of crazy fish happy dance.

I looked at her and said, "Did you know... fish... emote?" Holy crap. I had happy fish.

Yesterday I noticed the f***ing fish would only hang out in their castle. It was as if they were paranoid. I went from happy fish to... paranoid fish.

Then today, while still in their paranoid frame of mind, I turned on the fishtank light and they hid even further back. It was if they were almost lurking. After a few hours, I noticed three of them would swim, but the fourth? He's not. He's a freak. He hangs out in dark places. He's not in a good place. I can tell.

But one of his brothers? He may be out and about, but he's always banging into the tank glass and completely flipping out. It's like he's got the herky jerks. He's a nervous freaked out nelly.

I'm not kidding. I think we have pschotic fish. Pscychotic F***ing fish. GRRR.

Maybe their psychoses will shorten their life spans...

... they yearn to be free... they are each coping with being a POW differently... the one in the castle is probably curled in the corner secretly knitting a flag of some kind...

I think they would enjoy a different environment. Perhaps you should see if they behave better in the toilet bowl.

Was the sea grass you added to the tank actually "grass"? Perhaps they have the munchies . . .

Drop a couple Prozacs and Zanax in the tank then they just won't give a sh** if it gets cloudy again.

We seriously need a sedative in the water for one of those fish.

And PT- Bite your tongue, boy!

. . . we had a babysitter once that played "chase the fish with the net," with the kids, while we were out. The fish were really freaked. Nope, I did not use that babysitter again.
