Awww: Aquarium Fish Can't Get Enough Playing With Human

August 3, 2017


This is a video of Youtuber Bon Shaw's very affectionate Blood Parrot Cichlid. Apparently the fish just wants to be petted nonstop. Reminds me of my dog, except she can't swim for shit or tell me where the entrance to the lost city of Atlantis is.

This little guy just loves to watch me wherever I am in the room, he'll do anything to get my attention. And when I look at him he flares out his gills and dances from side to side just hoping that I'll come over to play. If I drop food in the aquarium he'll ignore it and hope to play. I have to walk away to get him to go find the food which has floated away by then. That said, in another tank I have a second Blood Parrot Cichlid that loves me but doesn't want to be touched. It's like having one dog and one cat. You just have to love the differences.

So does that fish think it's a dog or what? Because my dog thinks she's a human. Or at least that's what she told me when I caught her on the kitchen table eating my Chipotle leftovers. "You shouldn't have had any Chipotle leftovers." I wasn't finished! I just had to make an emergency pit stop in the bathroom. "Too much information." It was like when you're running out of water with a Super Soaker.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Amelie, who agrees hugs are important to everyone.

    Also, are we sure the fish is not trying to mate with him?

    Fish are friends, not food

    Fish are food.

    Maybe it's just itchy?

    I have 5 (one died masturbating while being sucked into the tank fan) exotic glow in the dark fish at home and they are so cute! I totally could've totally you before this post how adorable they are. Also, under my disguised name, I am writing about how fat afterooster's wife is:

    She is so fat, she once tried to eat a billboard ad for Wendy's.

    <3 Thomas

    i really wish i understood you- you seem to be schizophrenic and your gray matter is moving in all directions at once.

  • Irina Abramovich

    That's probably because of your near sightedness -- I wasn't writing to you and that's why your brain failed to make brain connections in order to write a coherent post.

    I heard Hazakabammer is so fat and jealous he hasn't been able to get out of the shit and piss soaked mattress he fell asleep in since he gained 1,500 lbs after eating ALL the sausage patties and omelettes at Denny's one time.

    I heard God has ADHD.=)=)=) Jealous?

    I am L33T!!!

    <3 Thomas

    Hubree: You have a perfect smile!!=)
    Irina: Best braces friends forever!!
