A man who downed two goldfish as part of a Neknomination dare before regurgitating them has been fined by magistrates.
Jack Blowers was sober when he went to a local shop to buy the fish, Lowestoft Magistrates' Court in Suffolk heard.
The 20-year-old was filmed setting up a pint-sized aquarium, complete with gravel and fish food, in a glass before drinking it in one go.
The clip, which was uploaded to Facebook, goes on to show him vomiting up the contents of the glass into a toilet. He then rescued the fish and took them to his grandmother's house, where he put them in her fish bowl.
They survived and are still alive today, prosecutor Kevin Batch said.
However, Mr Batch said the RSPCA prosecution was in the public interest because of the level of "pre-meditation" involved.
Blowers' lawyer said he did not realise what he did was illegal.
Blowers, of Cranfield Close, Lowestoft, pleaded guilty to failing to protect the fish from suffering and failing to meeting their needs on February 8 this year.
A vet's report presented to the magistrates confirmed that the fish would have suffered.
Blowers' friend, Joseph Meikle, 20, also from Lowestoft, filmed the stunt and has since accepted a caution.
Chair of the bench Philip Key fined Blowers £200 and ordered him to pay legal costs of £600. He also disqualified him from keeping animals for 12 months.
