Actually the common belief in the Christian community, is that the fish symbol was adopted because of what Jesus told the disciples who were fishermen: "Come with me, and I will make you fishers of men," (a reference to the evangelical calling of the apostles, to find and convert those who would believe.)

They said it was perfume, not water.And thats assuming she is telling the truth. The other teachers deny doing it.
And Catholics typically aren't big proselytizers. It's not like they go around trying to get people to join their church. Converting to Catholicism is a tedious and time-consuming process.
None of this "Just accept Christ as your Lord and Savior, yay now you're one of us, welcome to the club" malarkey for Catholics.
Also, I'm not sure how one would go about obtaining holy water, even if one were Catholic.
It's kept in a font attached to the wall near the entrance of the sanctuary. One dips one's fingers in it and crosses oneself.
One doesn't fill up one's Super-Soaker 5000 with it.
So I imagine they're telling the truth; it probably wasn't holy water.

Very true, Catholics don't proselytize and it would be sacrilegious to to put Holy Water in a squirt gun. Catholicism has stricter etiquette and even liberal Catholics would never disrespect Holy Water.
As far as obtaining Holy Water, Catholic Churches have a Holy Water urn with a spigot for the faithful to take as they wish.
