The Winnipeg Tribune, Manitoba, November 11, 1933

After 17 days, Sam Dunton, official photographer of New York’s aquarium, has the goods on Cha and Hotcha, the kissing gouramis. And are they in deep water! The scandalous going-ons were revealed when the two small fish, newly arrived from Holland, were placed on exhibition. First a woman tittered. Then a little boy said: “Hey, Ma, just like Mae West.” But when Sam Dunton decided to snap the loving pair for the aquarium publication, Cha and Hotcha didn’t bite. That is – not for 17 days – until Mr. Duton caught them making up one a big scale after a lover’s quarrel, as shown above.
