 haha  'colourful  pomfret'  takes  the  prize.
 
 yeah  tapping  the  tank  has  to  be  the  most  annoying.
 
 others-
   
 1)"when  will  these  'baby'  fish  grow  up?"  apparently  people  expct  all  tetras  etc  to  grow  up  big  Chuckle  
 
 2)  if  they  can  find  d  feed  container...lets  give  them  a  tiny  bit  of  food(  then  will  probably  give  them  more  than  what  is  needed  in  2  weeks  ,if  you  dont  intervene)  Surprised  
 
 fortunately  people  now  keep  their  kids  off  my  tanks..after  some  weird  story  that  my  piranha  bit  off  someones  finger  !  (not  true  of  course  !)

 1.  What  is  the  cost?  Oh!  you  are  so  rich  tokeep  such  costly  fish.
 2.  I  have  seen  this  fish  yesterday  on  or  fish  market  for  Rs.200/-  per  Kg.
 3.  Put  some  boiled  rice  and  fish  bones  they  will  be  healthy
 4.  Add  some  mud  collected  from  local  pond(in  Bengali  it  is  PAANK)  so  fishes  willbe  happy.
 5.  By  showing  my  2  ft  alligator  gar  "  Give  me  this  fisjh  I'll  keep  this  in  my  own  pond  and  it  will  breed  soon"
 6.  Where  is  Rahu/Katla?

 Chuckle  Colourful  pomfrets  take  the  cake.
 The  most  annoying  thing  for  me  is  undoubtedly  would  be  disturbing  the  fishes.
 I  hate  it  when  someone  feeds  my  fishes  without  my  permission.Once  i  was  out  and  a  cousin  of  mine  went  to  my  room  and  fed  the  fishes.When  i  came  back,to  my  horror  i  could  see  almost  the  whole  of  the  tank  surface  being  covered  with  pellets.
 Asking  stupid  illogical  questions  gets  on  to  my  nerves  too.For  example-
 1.Why  is  this  fish  so  colourful?
 2.How  big  would  this  fish  grow?
 3.Why  is  this  fish  chasing  the  other  fish?
 Once  someone  came  to  my  room  and  he  got  a  shock  to  see  my  15  inch  redtail.Then  he  passed  a  statement  'I  bet  this  fish  would  be  delicious  to  eat'  I  felt  like  feeding  that  guy's  hand  to  my  rtc.

 ya  i  get  the  same  comments  when  someone  sees  my  12  discus,  
 Next  annoying  is  when  they  try  to  put  their  hands  into  the  water  which  makes  me  go  wild
 
 The  worst  comment  of  all  is  that  ''my  goldfishes  are  expensive  than  your  discus'''
    what  do  i  say  to  such  people?

 haha  ya  the  comments  some  pass......well  thankfully  no-one  passed  any  annoying  comment  around  me  but  some  sure  have  been  amusing  like  a  couple  of  comments  a  relative  of  mine  passes  about  my  angels  and  pengasius  catfish  sharks.
 
 1.  Lol......since  i  got  white  angels  she  referred  to  them  as  those  "pomfret  things",  haha  i  was  kicked  by  it.
 2.  i  made  the  mistake  of  calling  these  catfish,  "sharks"  in  front  of  her,  and  since  they  resemble  actual  sharks  quite  a  bit,  shes  now  convinced  that  if  they're  kept  for  a  couple  of  years  they'll  grow  out  and  become  one  of  those  maneaters.
 
 but  im  greatful  that  those  around  me  respect  this  hobby  of  mine  and  treat  and  behave  with  my  fish  in  a  similar  fashion  that  i  would.  So  far  no  annoying  tapping  on  the  glass  or  asking  them  to  do  tricks  and  stuff   ROFL  
 infact  ever  since  i  started  keeping  these  fish,  people  who  have  seen  them  are  rather  eager  to  know  and  learn  more  about  them.  Otherwise  its  just  passed  off  as  another  ornament  to  decorate  the  home.

 1.  Why  are  the  plants  inside  the  tank  moving?  Is  it  because  of  the  ceiling  fan?  (people  don't  understand  the  working  of  canister  filter  -__-"  )
 
 2.  CO2  will  kill  the  fish!!
 
 3.  Why  are  the  fish  swimming  all  the  time?

 Awesome....this  is  going  to  be  more  funny.
 
 I  remember  one  guest  (probably  some  friend  of  my  parents  and  came  to  our  house  with  his  kids)   in  my  home  he  was  slapping  mosquitoes  and  throwing  them  in  the  tank  half  dead  and  my  fishes  were  eating  them  nicely   Crying or Very sad   Sad  
 
 I  went  buy  food  for  that  "stone  head  family"  and  by  the  time  i  came  back  he  already  feed  my  fishes  a  nice  snacks  and  i  saw  him  roaming  in  the  room  and  clapping  in  the  air  to  hunt  more   and  encouraging  his  kids  to  find  more  and  more  Shocked   Surprised   
 
 I  felt  like  slapping  him  there  on  the  spot..but  kept  restrain.  
 
 My  mother  hold  me  back  that  time  otherwise......
 
 Raj

 I  have  guests  who  stop  by  and  wonder  why  I  keep  such  drab  (I  keep  Calvus,  Xenotilapias  for  e.g.)  fish  that  do  not  have  bright  colors  or  remarkable  size.  
 
 Second  question  inevitably  is  directed  towards  how  much  'spare'  time  I  have  to  indulge  in  such  a  hobby  Sad
