Thousands Watching Aquarium Fish Play Street Fighter Streaming Online

By George Fox

File this under, "Internet, you know what I like".

Andrew Hill of Aylmer, ON, Canada is a 23-year-old software developer created a video stream featuring two aquarium fish playing Street Fighter II Turbo on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). The character selection, strikes and movements are dictated by which portions of the tank the fish are swim in.

As of writing this article, 26 wins for player 1, the goldfish, known as AG "Always Godlike" Aquarius vs 46 wins for player 2, the black fish, known as Robert The Bruce. Also 3732 people were watching and commenting ... and commenting.

I'm guessing feeding time is the best time to watch. Here's the daily schedule.

7:30 a.m. - Fish have breakfast, competitive Day begins
5:30 p.m. - Fish have supper, competitive Day continues
10 p.m. - Competitive Day ends, score summary is posted, Overnight stream begins, fish mostly just sleep.


By reading the description on the Twitch page, I get the sense that Hill is a good guy and I assume that no fish were harmed in the streaming of this video.
