...And that's why we don't let small children feed fish

My two little cousins were over (age 5 and 8) and I was showing them the new red cherry shrimp.

Then my cousins ask to feed the fish and I said yes since one extra pellet wouldn't hurt.

My older little cousin drops in one pellet for Addie.

Then my younger little cousin went and dumped like ten pellets on Henry. x_x

Thankfully Henry isn't much of a piggy. He ate two pellets and went back to being his normal lazy-body.

...that would probably explain why he gets along so well with the shrimp. He isn't a big eater at all. That and he's a wimp because even with a mesh wall between them, Addie can flare so much that it scares him and he goes to the other side of the tank. And then I saw him laying on his leaf hammock, a shrimp swam right up to him to pick at the leaf hammock for algae, and then he was like "I don't want to be on my leaf hammock anymore" and swam away...

...but then Henry flares at me, so I guess that means I'm lower on the totem pole than shrimp and Addie. How terrible! xD

10g: Rouleau - crowntail plakat male
20g tank: 4 neolamprologus multifasciatus + babies
5.5g: Nick - doubletail male
75g: harlequin rasbora, peacock gudgeon, green cory, red rainbowfish
