My aunt just told me yesterday that her son turned an old bubblegum machine into a fish tank! I'm guessing its about 5 gallons or so, and she was wondering why all the fish keep dying! I told her that she needs to cycle it first. My cousin was putting in all different sorts of fish. I couldnt help but laugh on the inside!

ummmm an old bubblegum machine has to be treated and converted properly before it can safely house fish. Not only are the fish dying of ammonia, but they are dying of toxic metals being released by the insides of the machine....

I know, thats why its so funny! I guess they had like 8 fish in there and now theres only one. Probably had a bio overload too! That whole part of the family is weird anyway. The fishies probably don't like drinking and swimming in bubblegum water! I gave them a few tips but I'm sure that it won't help any until they correctly cycle and clean up the bubblegum machine.

I didn't mean that its funny that their fish are dying. I thought it was funny that they set up a tank in a bubblegum machine without doing anything to it. Thats all I meant. Sheesh, I'm not that mean.
