Aquarium weens fish off Kit Kat habit

UPI News Service, 08/02/2011 

Workers at a London aquarium said they have successfully broken an 8.8-pound fish of its addiction to Kit Kat chocolate bars.

Rebecca Carter of the Sea Life London Aquarium said Gary the gourami had been raised on a diet of Kit Kat pieces by his former owners but she and her fellow handlers managed to ween him onto grapes by initially putting crushed Kit Kat into the fruit, Sky News reported Monday.

"I have never heard of a fish being fed chocolate, let alone being brought up entirely on the stuff," Carter said. "Gouramis usually eat a diet of fruit but Gary doesn't appear to have suffered any ill effects from his chocolate addiction."

"However, we would not recommend feeding fish confectionery of any kind," she said.
