fish tail #278

I'll be posting a collection of my most interesting and bizarre experiences of working at the 'quarium over the next wee while. Things that I never imagined I'd be paid to do (or do at all in some cases). Here's one from just the other day:

Having to give the Heimlich manouver to a Koaro that had gotten a piece of squid stuck in it's mouth. Poor wee begger was beginning to float and roll upside down when I noticed, so I pulled him out and gently squeezed his jaws and the chunk came out, put him back in and within a few seconds he was happily swimming about looking for more food to kill himself with. I felt like a true Fish Whisperer.

Who'da thunk it? Not I, for sure.
