Red face The things 4 year olds say....

So tonight we were eating dinner and my 4 year old son looks at me and says, "Mommy, im human and Dime is a doggy...we fart....Do my fishies fart?"

i about died laughing and then realized i did not know the answer to his question and he is not happy with I dont know.

So to ease my 4 year olds mind....Do fish fart?!?!?!

Not all fish fart. Most don't in fact.

Some species of cichlids do (maybe all?) and I believe the mako shark does, but thats all.

dojo loaches fart
they go up and take in air from the top of the tank and store it in their intestines
when they get too much air their back end will point up and if they cant keep it from wanting to float due to excess oxygen and the laws of buoyancy then they fart out the extra
if they fart out too much they go up for another gulp of air :)

When male fish fart, all other fish will run for cover. When female fish fart,, Little pink puffy hearts come out. But female fish hardly ever fart in public.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
