This fish has developed a taste for exotic food!
Meryl, The Fish Emporium

Virtual tank fish with the special attribute exotic diet will not eat food that is normally preferred by others of their kind. Instead, they will eat a special kind of food such as pizza, ice cream, or chicken. In the emporium, they are priced at 25,000 shells, and their additional notes will indicate which of the three foods they like. They are quite common.

Interestingly, breeders in the Virtual Tank will also eat exotic foods on top of regular fish food. Brinkley is known to be indiscriminate between fish food and exotic food.
