    I eat fish, but I'm not a fan of really "fishy" tasting fish. I like salmon, sole, whitefish, etc. I also like shrimp and scallops, and various bivalves. I -do- love sushi, though I'm a bit squicked out by really huge pieces of raw fish.

    Now I'd never eat a betta (not that there's enough in one to eat) or goldfish or anything, but everything else is fair game.

    I think I am the most evil here, as I eat sushi almost every day for lunch! I especially love salmon & tuna sashimi... Tasty little suckers! >:D

    The only thing we've eaten since our obsession/hobby started is shrimp. i don't have shrimp in any of my tanks (yet). I always shudder when I see "tilapia" listed on a restaurant menu because of my research on Malawi species.

    I love seafood, my wife even more. It's only recently I began to eat sushi though, mostly because I was forced into it. lol

    We got married in August of 08 and live in Long Island. A lot of my wife's family lives in Florida, namely Weston, Ft. Lauderdale & Boca Raton. While we were there her older cousin invited us over for dinner. We went to see her house and she drive us past all the $25 million dollar homes in the area. lol Must be nice and I'm sure plenty of them had nice tanks too! lol

    Anyway, we get back to her house and she has sushi delivered. That's it, sushi for dinner. At that point I HAD to have it. lol I enjoyed it though and am glad I was forcd into it. If not then I may never have tried it. Since then we've had it about once a month. I'm not a big fan of sashimi though, although I will eat it.

    A few weeks back my wife and a really tough week at work so on Friday I went out and bought some king crab legs, crab stuffed mushrooms, baked clams and made shrimp scampi. Good stuff.

    The only thing I refuse to do is purchase live lobsters and cook them at home. I'll eat them when I'm out but I'm not about to toss them in the pot myself at home.

    Interesting. What kinds of fish might that include?

    For Malawi cichlids, it's the Cynotilapia family. I know, it doesn't make sense since Tilapia isn't the same, but it freaks me out:;dk

    I need some Nile males and Mozambique females.

    I go fishing and eat fresh fish from April to December....If I lived in Brasil, I would be eating some of the beautiful catfish....which we import as babies and try to keep in goldfish bowls.mmmm and pizza with neon tetras instead of anchovies!!! Then MATT would cook up some fresh wild discus for us....perfect size for a hamburger bun!!!

    And people in Basil would be wondering why we eat those beautiful sunfish and bluegills.

    Ok, I'm an oddball. I don't eat fish. But not because I keep them as pets... I became a vegetarian long before I became a fishkeeper.

    Being half Japanese, fish has been a big part of my diet for my entire life... ain't likely to change now. I love sushi and sashimi, we have it regularly. Don't do the octopus thing though. <shudder>

    I have the opportunity to go Salmon & Halibut fishing when I am not busy but during the summer of course when the Salmon are like fresh seafood, especially when you catch it yourself. It's so much fun! I also eat Rockfish (Red Snapper and Rockcod), Shrimp and Dungeness Crab all freshly caught. also love scallops.
