A Tale of a Tail

 Age of Aquariums > Fishy Tales Previous Story | Following Story 



Well I was doing some tank maintenance for my breeding pair of Oscars. I had the lid off the tank. Well of course it was too much for my nosey Himalayans to resist. They were climbing on a shelf right beside the tank. Well one particular Him named SheDevil (meet this cat and you'd know why that's her name!) was sitting on the edge of the shelf with her tail dangling over the side. The big mean male Oscar saw the tail dangling about 3 cm from the water surface. He jumped up and grabbed hold of her tail! He let go instantly like "YUCK that worm has hair on it". The cat totally freaked out, she has never been on that shelf again!
