Michael Jackson got his name because he likes to swim backwards which resembles the moonwalk. He was banished from my brothers fish tank because as a young fish he was eating several of the others. He was headed toward the freezer until I rescued him and decided to start my own fish tank with just him. He started out in a 10 gallon tank until I moved in to my new house and could get a 70 gallon fish tank...just for him. After growing to about 8 inches I decided to get him a new companion..."Goldie" another baby oscar. However, sadly after about a month Goldie passed away...very sad. Michael Jackson loves to eat blood worms and also earth worms. The earthworms were a messy treat though. Michael Jackson is a cool fish that is quite smart.
