Wouldn't it be a cool April fools joke to replace the fish with pirahnas?

Read that just now, too! Just another savvy business venture. I remember reading about how red bull got started. Supposedly some dude from Europe went to Thailand and had a sip from the local drink; some kindda concoction that's been around for ages. Brought the formula back and BOOM! Now there are more energy drink choices than bottled water.

HA! Did they mention what the temperature was for these fish? If too high, I doubt we can keep many plant types:( But that's funny:p

Ew! On so many levels. With all those water changes how many fish are they killing from stress? Is this a healthy diet for these fish and what about fish TB? Cant TB be spread to humans from fish?

There are various types of Mycobacteria that live in the soil, water, that are not "TB" (aka Mycobacterium tuberculosis). TB usually is spread by aerosol droplets. There are other kinds of non-TB that occur in persons who are immune compromised. In people with normal immune systems, the non-TB forms usually occur by direct innocculation at the site of entry, like a cut - an example would be Mycobacterium marinum.
