My fear is about the guppy... Just imagine what it would be if a 1-ton pis*ed off guppy desides it's time for revenge! :vangry :martial :blackeye
(I killed at least few dozens myself as a home-made aquarist!)

A 1-ton Catfish probably wouln't be too cool to run into either in my view. There are some big 'uns that like to hang around the outlets of a few dams in Arizona that tend to be somewhat less than friendly, not to mention they eat anything and everything that gets inside the range of their whiskers.....

Why is it that the most potentially dangerous animals are usually small enough to be harmless? Small pets like hamsters and parakeets are often vicious and untrainable, and have a surprisingly nasty bite for their size. If large animals such as horses and cattle were similarly tempered, we would be in trouble.

The same seems to apply to things that live in the water... fair enough, there are sharks, barracudas etc, but they don't always attack everyone they encounter, and I've never known a goldfish to think twice about eating something.

Maybe we're more lucky than we think!

Edit: There is a 660lb carp!

Party pooping:
Crabs, sea urchins and jellyfish-oids are not fish.

Think of the disgustment stepping on a 2000lbs sea cucumber (not a fish)


oh yeah man, but if we can imagine a 2000 lb bulldolphin, why cant we in that logic imagine a sea urchin as a fish? haha :) :t

A 2000lb sucking loach could be dangerous. I used to keep tropical fish, and the sucking loach is supposed to be peaceful and good to keep with other species. This is partly true as 99.999% of the time it is a peaceful grazer of algae, and it keeps the sides of the tank clean like this. Unfortunately the other 0.001% of the time it decides on a variation to its diet, and at night it attaches itself to another fish and eats a hole in it, causing a fatal wound.

Newts (not a fish :)) would also be mean if they were any bigger - these amphibians which live in ponds are great fighters, and they eat anything that moves, including each other. Fortunately they can grow new parts, so although they regularly lose legs and tails, there is no permanent damage.

The dragonfly larva (an insect) is also a fierce predator in ponds. It uses its lower lip, which is armed with long hooks, to catch its prey. It also breathes through its rectum, and uses it for jet propulsion (by filling it with water and then expelling it).

Back to fish... I wouldn't want to meet a 2000lb pike. There is a record of one that killed a fully-grown and healthy swan.

I'm glad I don't live in a pond!

Once when I was a kid I caught a large dragonfly nymph in the school pond and carried it around the playground. It was farting frantically, either trying to breathe or hoping to escape by jet propulsion.

I released it back in the pond, so it lived to fart another day...
