- - Epileptic fish? (http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/off-topic-discussions/epileptic-fish-114582/)
While I was shopping in my LFS yesterday, a customer came in with his young son, carrying a gallon size bowl with one goldfish. I started chatting with him, usual stuff, and then a clerk came over and asked if he could be of assistance. The customer said that he thought his goldfish had epilepsy, but continued talking with me while the clerk held up the fishbowl and looked at the fish.
"I don't see anything wrong here" said the clerk.
The child said, "Well, wait til we take him out of the bowl."
:rofl: Thanks for sharing!
They must be treating it like Klaus from American Dad.
Not much difference in my view, to those betta keeper's that remove the fish from their tiny bowl's to clean the bowl,change water etc.
They often proclaim that they remove the fish to prevent stressing it out during cleaning's.
Not much more stressful for fish than to be removed from their home and plopped into tiny jar,bowl,cup,etc.
i don't take my bettas out for cleanings anymore >.< they are much happier just running away from the vacuum.
I thin they should know that fish naturally flop around when they are out of the water. My question is why we're they taking the fish out of the water? If they don't know that fish can't be taken out of the water like that I don't think they should really be owning fish.... But just my opinion.

I was wondering this, too. I have LED lights and I was worried if my fish could get epilepsy. Lol
Fish can have epilepsy, although its usually as a result of poor water quality, toxins, disease, injury, and electrocution. I don't think LED lights will cause seizures.
