Do you remember this video of an affectionate blood parrot cichilid we shared a couple of years ago?
Well, it became a huge sensation on Reddit.com yesterday. In fact, it it inspired another redditor – who professes to work at a public aquarium – to post this video of herself giving Atlantic reef fish “gravel shower spa treatment” as she calls it.
Whether you think treating fish like this is a good idea, you got to admit all the fishes really seem to be enjoying themselves … like, *really* enjoying themselves. It’s equal parts distressing, bizarre, and aww-inspiring.
If your friend or family member excitedly asks you if they can play with your fish, consider yourself warned.
