I want mr. Big Ugly Fish! I don't know XD I'd love to have a fish that tried to eat me.......is there any chance he would jump out of his tank and proceed to maul me?

Edit: sometimes Pumpkin will come up and nibble my finger when it's in the water......

I know a guy who got bit by a flowerhorn. He said it brought tears to his eyes. He had to clonk it on the head with a siphon hose to get it to let go and now the thing changes colors every time it sees him. We never did figure out of the color change meant the flowerhorn was scared of him or angry at him.

Lol, after I fed Pumpkin a bloodworm last night, I tried to get her to eat her flakes. She zoomed around them and continued her hungry dance -_- he pets a flowerhorn? O.o I like me hand too much to attemp that. Actually, yesterday at the LFS I saw a bunch of baby oscars in a tank, so after hearing the act like puppies, I put my finger on the tank to see what would happen. They all rushed up to me and were wiggling happily like " Play? Play? With me!" and it was an awwww moment XD

I almost never see my platies. How did you get Pumpkin to act so social?

Oscars are so cute. I'd go with an Oscar before a flowerhorn.

Yes, but Oscars need a big tank. I mean, you technically could keep an adult Oscar in a 55 gallon, but it's like keeping a betta in a 1.5, yknow? You can, but it's a ton of extra maintenance, and I'm not too keen on doing 50% water changes once a week -_- and since it's huge, my parents probably think it would need like 1 YEARLY water change......imbociles

Edit: I really don't know why she's so social. It may be because of the sparse decorations, but she doesn't seem stressed, so :/ she won't eat in the morning, but at night after dark she comes up to the surface and does he food dance, put he lipstick above water and nibbles really fast and makes allot of bubbles, and she'll eat a bloodworm and then zoom around, it's cute. Actually, she let's me pet her :/
