A giant gourami which survives on chocolate wafers, is forced to go on a diet after being deemed overweight.
The 4kg fish, named Gary, was only fed Kit Kat by his previous owner before being donated, The Sun reported.
New owners at the Sea Life London Aquarium grew concerned that Gary was outgrowing his tank and tried to feed him healthier food, but Gary initially refused it.
Rebecca Carter, his care-taker, admitted: 'I've never heard of a fish being fed chocolate, let alone brought up entirely on the stuff.'
'Gary doesn't appear to have suffered ill effects. Most fish wouldn't be able to survive on Kit Kats, but gouramis are very hardy.'
Kit Kat pieces were eventually put into grapes and banana slices to convince Gary to snack on the fruit.
