Post by Fishypastor on Sun Mar 29, 2015 8:56 pm

1) Would you be worried if your 5 year old came running upstairs and said "Daddy, my friend put something in the fish tank?"

Answer: I sure was.

2) Does toilet paper make a really big mess when a clump is just thrown in?

Answer: Ummm, freaking understatement!

3) Can an Oscar, a pleco, a convict and a krib survive mounds of toilet paper?

Answer: Yes.

4) Does is take a long time to remove toilet paper from a 37 gallon tank?

Answer: Yes.

Lol, yes it could have been much worse! I was expecting it to be lego, at least that would have looked cool in the tank.

Oh my - I can just imagine your initial reaction when you heard the first question! 

A friend of mine was taking a nap and his 7 year old son woke him up with a proud smile, saying, "daddy, I fed the fish for you". My friend immediately got up to observe his son's well intentioned deed, only to discover that his son had dumped in half of the container of food! His words, "worst mess ever to clean up - but I had to acknowledge that he did a good thing by wanting to help, so....I told him that the fish only need a little food, maybe to compare it to the size of their eyes, and that it was best to help with feeding with daddy present!". 

Glad you got the toilet paper out - I imagine it was a task and a half!
