My mother has this collection of pet fish, including some Siamese fighting fish which look so beautiful!

I love watching them swim.

    Did you guys know, There was an atonal musician who drew a stave on a giant fish tank and designated note values to each of the fish and just played where the fish swam.
    Interesting, sounds like **** but interesting.

      I have had a lot of fish in my lifetime. More goldfish then I can remember( one of which lived over two years, I believe) and two Betta fish. The first Betta lived 2 years and the second, which I got for Christmas one year, lived 6 months. I like fish as pets, but they usually dont live very long :(

      OH I GET IT NOW.

      See I've never heard a staff referred to as a stave in music so I was thinking like a stave as in a stake or something. Then I read 'played' as literally like played around, not played an instrument. That post was all sorts of nonsense to me hahah.

        We've never had a singing fish but I do remember playing with them at the store and making them sing. I still sometimes do that with singing things when I'm wandering about Wal-Mart with nothing else to do.

        I feel like they were the first popular things with motion detectors. Kind of like Avatar and 3D, they're the ones that pushed motion detectors into the 'fad' stage.

          Hahaha that's quite funny.
          It must be my Australian linguistics, it is to my understanding that it's staff in America and other countries but since I was little it's always been stave.

          I have no idea if you're American or not but hey.
          Other words you might find confusing from the Australian dictionary:
          Boot - Trunk (like in a car)
          Biscuit - Cookie
          G-banger - Thong
          Thong - Sandal I think? like on your feet at the beach shah.
          Then there's the many synonyms for beer, hello, friend, not-friend, urination and female significant other, which are all very.. inappropriate for an internet forum.
