My 3 year old cousin got hold of my fishfood. Kid is too smart. she can open ziploc bags and screw open jars. And if she can't reach something too high, she gets chairs and stools to step on.
I found my pond full of food and water was cloudy. I had to net out all the food and do a partial water change. One of my betta tanks got dumped full of food too. I found the poor fish lying on the bottom, too full to swim. I thought he wouldn't make it, but thank goodness he did. I had to starve my fish for 3 days because of all the food they ate.
Kid is a bane to my fish (and the garden in general). I caught her drinking from the pond, dipping her hands into the aquariums, throwing bread and biscuits into the pond, ripping garden plants, getting a broom and waving it around randomly and breaking some flowerpots, shouting at the fish, and various other mischief. You just can't take your eyes away from her for a few minutes without something happening.
When I'm at school/work, whenever I think about my fish it's always followed by the thought "I hope my cousin hasn't killed my fish or herself yet..."
