    I basically needed to perform a Heinrich maneuver onPicasso clown. As I was putting in frozen mysis a clump of hair from my golden retrievers must have been on my hand and fell in with food fish started gobbling up food and clown got a mouth fiull of hair for about 20 minutes it was dragging behind him from mouth. He started twitching and going nuts. Then I freaked. Got him in net then bowl and just was grabbing area near mouth since hard to see hair out of tank. Eventually found it and pulled it out. It was stuck pretty good hoping not in gills. Seems to be fine. Anybody have anything crazy like this?

    I guess there's a lesson here. Glad your clown is fine.

    Cats do hair balls, fish do not.

    I swear my wife sheds worse than a golden retriever. I am hoping that never happens to me.

    I took a day off of work because of my coughing fish. Horrible story, I should write a novel on it.

    You shave your wife to stop her from having a hairball issue? Is she a Bigfoot Gus?:D
