Exibit A of why people shouldn’t use live centerpieces! My aunt and uncle used godsfish in their centerpieces years ago. Some fish died but one ended up having babies during the reception. That was pretty cool but the belly-up floaters… not so much.

Ewww. My cake baker convinced me to do cake stands with betas in them. Only 3. And she says she’ll be on dead fish watch. She better be!

Goldfish are egg-layers. Were they mollies perhaps? Mollies (and guppies, swordtails, and platys) are live-bearers.

 

Either way, I think living centerpeices are a no-go.

That’s usually what happens. The only other outcome are drunken dares to eat the fish. I have seen both. ๐Ÿ™

@Lindsay05: Exactly. 

Fish in centerpieces and butterflies at ceremonies almost never work out well.  ๐Ÿ™
