3. 23-year-old software developer Andrew Hill, from Ontario, set up the stream on video game livestreaming site Twitch just over a week ago and it’s now attracted nearly 14,000 followers.
4. As the fish swim around their tank, they activate different buttons on the SNES controllers. “The fish do not actually fight each other in real life,” Hill is keen to point out on his Twitch page.
But they CAN do special move combos: if a fish moves in the right direction (from down to forward and a punch button, for Ryu or Ken’s fireball) then they will trigger one. Although this seems to very rarely happen.
5. The fish have very different fighting styles.
Andrew says A.G. Aquarius “has an aggressive fighting style which relies on rapid movement and flowing combos. However, his headstrong approach in a match can become his undoing when he finds himself running directly into his opponent’s fist over and over… and over… and over…”
Whereas Robert the Bruce “is much more methodical in his technique, often pausing and waiting to counteract his opponents style, then striking at the most opportune moments.”
