My little sister once dumped all of the food into my 18 gallon tetra tank and then proceded to colour all over the glass. Luckily, I have good parents and she learned her lesson.

Now that she's a bit older I will let her feed Copper under my supervision. I can tell she really likes taking care of him. :)

*Raises hand* My fish is named Phil. Not Phillip, though, just Phil.

I don't have little kids over well...ever. But I did go away for a long weekend (labor day) and left specific instructions on feeding him (I live with my parents and teenage sister currently). I got back and the tank was filthy, even though I had done a full cleaning just before I left, and poor Phil was bloated. They had just been shaking in pellets every day and massively overfed him. I had to clean the tank again which likely stressed him out more and then fast him for a few days which made him really moody. He was flaring at EVERYTHING for a good week after that, and he normally rarely flares even if provoked with a mirror.

I've never had this problem but I can definitely see why you're mad. Kids need to learn about animals before they start interacting with them.

Yeah but I don't think it counts if its a learning experience. I threw insects into spider webs all the time and watched them get eaten. I don't think these kids were planning on killing or torturing any fish they simply just wanted to see what happened if they put all that food in there lol. Now if they were throwing cats off of buildings...

I really hate that. Too many people think of fish as "lesser" animals.

Children who abuse animals scare me. If they like to set fires and/or wet the bed as well chances are very high that they will become violent criminals.
