Unintentional fishicide

I’m hoping there hasn’t been a case of unintentional fishicide here tonight. When nobody was looking, Jeremy decided it would be helpful to feed the fish. Unfortunately his idea of feeding the fish means dumping a whole bunch of fish food into the tank, as well as (thankfully) all over the floor.

The fish seemed pretty happy about this, unaware of the health risks it entails for them. They were still happily munching away a few minutes later when I forcibly evacuated them out into a big bowl, sans food. They can stay there for the night, so hopefully when they go back in their tank in the morning, there won’t be so much food easily edible in there, and the break from eating will mean it’s not so dangerous.

Bloody delicate species, goldfish. I wonder how they got on in the wild.
