Update on Barney

Barney did not make it... As he's been our pet fish, we don't have the heart to eat him! The last fish that died was given to some Indon cleaners. They said its flesh was really tasty. I'll take their words for it.

It's actually poisonous to eat home rare fish cos the food they eat has lots of chemical. I think those indons kena toxic also they dunno.

hijackqueen, Barney was a carp so quite safe to be eaten. Fish food has lots of chemical? Hmm... Never thought of that. I didn't buy the type which gives the fish more colour, so hopefully there's less chemical in the fish food. Again, in this day and age, human food also contain lots of chemicals already, not to mention genetically modified.

Sorry to hear about Barney, Min. I totally understand how you feel about eating Barney. When I was working at the hotel, we had a pond filled with carp and tortoises. We fed them every day as it was near the reception counter. One day, the recreation guy didn't put enough anti-chlorine and the carp started swimming weird. The tortoises started attacking the poor fishies (usually the tortoises leave them alone). Recreation guy took away the dead and dying fish and then offered to give them to us 'to eat'! Said it was 'sedap'! Didn't have the heart to imagine it steamed with ginger and mushrooms...

Those carp were very well-fed, nice colouration...so sayang. With guppies, you have no love...but with carp, they grow on you.

me aka lenglui, must give the fish a chance to live especially knowing that it was still alive lah.

a&a'smom, Barney has gone to a bigger pond in the sky where he can swim freely and not have idiots throw rubbish into his pond. He was actually getting too small for the pond already.
