Our cats like to drink from the aquariums, but they don't try to eat the fish. If a fish comes right up to the surface, a cat will sometimes dab a paw at it, but they leave the fish alone.
I once had our cat try to jump up onto the lid of the tank, realize in midair that the lid was open, land somehow on the rim of the tank, slip, fall halfway in, and scramble back out along with about a gallon of water. Had to go catch her with a towel and dry her off because it was winter and freezing cold. Also had to dry my floor off and change my shirt. Lots of escaping water. Traumatized the cat- she now rears up onto her hindpaws to check if the tank is closed before jumping up.
