The Museum

The Nibble Fish can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"The official name given to this warm-water-dwelling species of fish is "Garra rufa." They are omnivorous, as they both eat algae and scrape the skin off other fish. All you'd have to do to feed them is stick your hand in the tank; they would live off your dead skin. That's why they're called nibble fish. They exfoliate but don't have any teeth, so it doesn't hurt at all!"


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a nibble fish! Do you regret nibbling now?"
