Ken’s Flower-Eating Fish

We’ve tracked tigers, done the holy kora around Mt. Kailash, swum with whale sharks, and visited the Taj Mahal. But seriously, people, one of the greatest things we’ve discovered in our travel careers is Ken’s flower-eating pet fish.

In 1982, Ken (Fatt) caught the fish, a giant gourami, and put it into a small pool in his family’s garden. Bizarrely, the fish, which the family has creatively named “Fish”, seems to be thriving in the pool and has adapted to the family’s presence – it even eats flowers right out of your hand. Honestly, Fish seems much more like a puppy dog to me. How cool is that?

    LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
    I think after all these years the fish deserves a name.

    I think we should call her Fantasia.
    Yes, she is a female fish.

  4. Most importantly, can you pet Fish, and will she suck on your toes?

    Ken, How’d you know it’s sex? did you ask it? :)) and
    Laurelle, i wouldn’t recommend you petting it or to put your toes anywhere near it. Fish regards anything near it as yummy food. I got a bloody finger a long time ago to show for it.
