Funny Ant bit my Rosy Barb

mattmf1

so we are having a bit of an ant problem at my house lately. But this afternoon me and my son were checking out the fish when I noticed a rosy barb had an ant in its mouth. the ant was too big for the barb to eat though. so I dropped in a few flakes, figuring the barb would drop the ant and I could fish it out. he was eating the flakes, but not letting go of the ant. I thought, "wow, that is one greedy fish", but after closer inspection I noticed it was actually the ant that had bit the barb on the "lip" and wouldn't let go. I was pretty amazed by the tanacity of the ant. so I grabbed the fish in a net and the ant let go. I figured the ant deserved to live after all it had been through, so I tossed it out side.

I tried to get a pic, but the barbs swim like they are on a constant sugar high.

I read some where that an ant can live several days to several weeks under water.

How do they breathe?
