Re: Fish Up My Hole !

So, Mark, what is the status of your pet fish?

Has it been expunged, speared or BBQ'd?

I have named him/her.


(Actually I have named him/her after one of our Forum Members. But I shan't say who).

We have come to a tacit agreement: When I need to fill the sink I push the button for just a second or 2. My fish realises this as he gets sucked backwards up the pipe. When the water stops he takes the oportunity and shoots out like a rabbit out of a hole with a ferret up his butt.
I then turn the water on fully.

I have had no problems and whenever I dive on him he shows quite a deal of respect on his face.

Gee, I hope you don't get too attached to him/her!

I mean, once you start naming pets, it's pretty hard to eat them.

Just ask Bossy the cow. Or Porky the Pig. Or BaBa the black lamb.

Re: Fish Up My Hole !

Sue She she now is!

And for David the fish is one of the Blenny's. Porppa name Blennioidei. Which precise one is a bit difficult to determain. Blennioidei - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Very widespread often sand coloured on the sandy bottom or in holes; also in coral and finding a hole that fits its body for protection.

Also they look like a small version of a Mudskipper... and Googling them they are...

I haven't been anywhere for nearly a month.

Rudder Fish seem to come back.
They are the tiny little fish that live between the top of the rudder and the hull. Very cute. Seen them all over the world. Think they follow me.
Some at less than 1 cm long, the biggies about 2 cms largest.
