I dropped half a large hikari pellet into the tank and he grabbed both pieces before i could get one out!!! :no:

Blub is a fantail. He is young and about 1" long. In perfect health.

And he has spent an hour kinda chewing at the bottom...he looks okay---not dying. But I was wondering why he didn't spit it out...and why he's spent so much time chewing! It gets very soft within a minute.

Could a goldfish vomit if need be? :idont

They can and do spit food out. My oranda went through a phase of swolling something then spitting it out to go for a bigger one....

They can spit out, but usually I find that they so mostly when they've bitten off more they can chew, or they have irritations in the mouth area.

you shoulda seen him bolt for the huge gulp of food. no thinking...i'm amazed by how much these cute little beings know about getting along in their world...but sometimes you see them do something that reminds you that their brain is the size of a blackberry seed LOL
