Do Bumble bee fish eat flowers and honey?
Question Date: 2012-05-03
Answer 1:

Bumblebee fish look like bumblebees but they don't eat flowers or honey. Bumblebee fish are round and yellow with black stripes. Bumblebee fish like to eat brine shrimp and little aquatic creatures like daphnia (commonly called water fleas).

Answer 2:

I don't think fish could eat flowers and honey, because fish live in water and flowers and honey are on land. I'm guessing that the bumblebee fish has yellow and black stripes, and that's how it got its name.

Answer 3:

Unfortunately not, it is called a bumble bee fish for its distinctive black-and-yellow striped markings.
