Fish Feud Turns Tank Topsy-Turvy

Squidward and Spongebob are not the worst neighbors underwater – these fish are fighting dirty.

A quiet afternoon turned sour this weekend when Diamond Goby decided to try to bury his neighbor, Blue Spotted Jawfish in his own burrow. The two fish tossed sand back and forth with their mouths, Diamond Goby even going so far as to shovel lots of sand in with his fins for an advantage over his struggling neighbor. Tank-mate Scooter Blenny caught the brunt of Jawfish’s frustration, as Jawfish told him to scoot away when he came to see what the fuss was about.

Footage of the feud was caught on video by Dawn Oliphant-Dababneh and shared with Facebook, where it has been viewed over a million times by both fish and fight enthusiasts.

Clownfish was called to the scene, but was unsuccessful in bringing peace to these tank mates. Nobody takes Clownfish seriously.
