I don't know if maybe this thread has been made before.. but here goes.

What is the best story you have about your experience with keeping fish?

A fish's amazing/humorous personality? First hand experiences? Amazing things you might have discovered about your fish? Any kind of story you'd like to share!

I'm fairly new to keeping fish and I'd love to hear your stories! I think I'm getting sucked into this hobby more and more every day lol..

I guess the best story I have is with one of my Ballon Mollys. I had bought a pair of Ballon Mollys, both female, a while back ( maybe three months? ) and one of them was SO pregnant.

Anyways, I kept wondering everyday when she'd have the babies. I waited and watched and was hoping to see her having the babies. Well, one weekend I was away some place and I left my mom caring for my fish. I told her to feed them and keep an eye out for babies. I didn't think the Molly would give birth while I was away.. but she did!

It was such a BIG mess! My mom was flipping out and my grandma was flipping out and everyone was trying to get them to the baby tank we had! It was, at the time and still is for me, funny because of how my mom was amazed/excited/freaked out that all these tiny fish were just born and she was trying to transfer them all to safety lol

If I can think of any other stories I'll be sure to post! I can't wait to hear about your fish! :)

thats hilarious!!!hahaha

my most memorable fish experience would have to be my first synodontis catfish...it had the personality of a 500 lb pig. it hate half of my supply of shrimp pellets in less than a month and the supply was pretty large...

i just bought another synodontis the other day and it is still my favorite type of fish by far because they can adapt to any feeding time even if they are nocturnal*Glasses*:)

My only amazing fish story always seems to get a laugh. I came home one day to both my little girls with somber faces because one of my guppies had passed during the day and they had decided to give it a funeral. They had put the fish into a small jar and buried it in the garden in the back yard. I insisted they show me where it was because I didn't feel that broken glass when tilling the garden the next spring was going to be any fun for me. I helped them dig up the jar so that we could relocate it to a place less in the way of my gardening but when I looked in the jar, the guppy was swimming around. The water was almost ice cold because of the time of year but I put that guppy back into my tank and he lived another couple of years. We always referred to him as the miracle guppy. I have no idea why the girls thought he was dead but he stopped acting that way in that cold jar.
