Me and my brother turn the fishes home to his doom, for when we work together we take his breath away, one of us is an unassuming treat, alone we do nothing but together we make a mess

This is referring to fishing with coke and mentos. Mentos is an "unassuming treat", but when coke and mentos are put together, they give off CO2, which causes "a mess", and "takes [the fish's] breath away".

    $\begingroup$ What's the connection to the fish you're making there? $\endgroup$ – Sneftel Nov 20 at 8:46
  • $\begingroup$ The O2 part from CO2 comes from the oxygen in water, so you are removing the breath (the oxygen) from the water $\endgroup$ – Mathias711 Nov 20 at 10:39

    $\begingroup$ Could someone explain the fishing angle here? This has 11 votes as of now, so I assume at least 12 people know something that I do not. $\endgroup$ – JPhi1618 Nov 20 at 15:31

    $\begingroup$ @JPhi1618 It should be written "the fish's home" (i.e. the water) not "the fishes home" which is just bad spelling and confusing. $\endgroup$ – Vince O'Sullivan Nov 20 at 20:40

Are you

A worm and a hook?

Me and my brother turn the fishes home to his doom,

They’re used in conjunction to catch fish

for when we work together we take his breath away,

Ostensibly when you catch fish you take them out of water

one of us is an unassuming treat,

The worm is

alone we do nothing

A worm by itself doesn’t catch a fish, and neither does an unbaited hook

but together we make a mess

Catching the fish

I would say nutrients and plankton, which together cause algal blooms that deoxygenate the water and kill all the fish: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eutrophication
