Trending: Fish petting and stoning

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 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.
