I have to refute this. I killed 3 of my daughters fancy goldfish about 10
years ago by feeding them too much. They didn't explode but did eat till
they died, they were dead when I came home from work. As this was winter
and they were goldfish the water was too cold for the food to have had
that much of an impact on it.
