my fish threw up...poor thang. it got so scared because I was coming after him with a tool he never saw before, some tweezers. THere was a dust-like string stuck in his mouth and I thought he was choking on it! it was definitely stuck inside him! I freaked and quickly grabbed tweezers. I wasn't thinking at first and tried to use him in fishbowl but then quickly decided to transport him to a cup. As soon as I swiped him up with fish net and into the cup, he threw up( i just fed him lunch, a big lunch at that, because decided he needed more in his belly because he's only 2 months old) and he ate his own throw up. Disgusting but I think its survival instinct. After that I successfully got the dust-like string unattached to him, I put him back in the water along with the water that he threw up in because that was the easiest way to put him back in the fishbowl. I couldn't use the fish net again.
But anyways I just wanted to tell my story to those who can relate? I am a little worried about his behavior, he is still and not active. BTW, I did a complete water change because I wasn't comfortable putting him back in the water he threw up in and I fed him two pellets for dinner, what he usually gets.
I feel better now that I changed his water, I just can't stand him when he acts weird. I love it when he's swimming around and acting ferocious. I hope he will be back to his normal self soon.
Anybody ever had their fish barf on them? I guess I did give him too much to eat to begin with...3 pellets and also he ate two of them in one gulp! They were stuck together and he went for it! Wow, that explains a lot...omgosh I might have to keep his diet to a minimum these several days coming up.
