Man I hope they do the worse possible thing to these guys.

I always hated frat pranks - and usually the one's who participate never manage to grow up (so they end up being middle aged morons). Ugh!

.....this really broke my heart. I love Koi's - they really have personality.

That really makes me mad, too. But jokes on them. If that fish ever got any fish medication, they may have ingested some pretty toxic stuff. (not enough to make them sick, but still)

Meds for ornmental fish are different and cannot be used on fish that are going to be eaten.

I wonder how many students will be upset about this and then eat fish for lunch. I hope somebody points that out to them. Maybe some will make the connection.
