Okay...::sigh:: here it goes. After today's water change I spent an hour capturing and extracting a strand of my hair from one of my peacocks. I have fine long blonde hair and my Afghan Hounds also have fine long hair...so inevitably a few strands wind up in the tank but they are hard to detect.

Sooo my question is this: If a hair winds up in the tank, one of my fish eats that hair, and I fail to catch it in time....is this potentially fatal? or likely to be?

Between my cats, dogs and myself, there's alway some hair floating (or swimming) around and I've yet to see a problem after a couple of decades of fishkeeping. :thumb:

Thanks Triscuit! I was never overly concerned about it until my peacock swallowed part of a foot long hair and was swimming about with it training behind him. I realized it could be going in one end, and out the other for days....I had visions of it then going through another fish and having a train of fish attached by a single hair, it getting twisted up inside or something equally disasterous. :D
