ok lets see what happens, i've uploaded my video on youtube & have been told how to embed it here...hope it works!!!

enjoy!!!
& to explain the video a bit, he does this everyday - several times! Has been doing this for a couple months - he either wants to be a goldfish, wants out of the tank, feels the need to work out a little, or wants my attention in some odd way - although he does this at night when the light is off LOL

LOL thumbs2:

I think i should make this a vote - is he:

a) goldfish
b) exercising
c) wants out
d) wants that thing off his mouth/my attention

LMAO thats amazing...i wonder if he will start trying to knock the food out of my hand at feeding time too...actually on second thought he is usually a 1/2inch from my fingers when i put his food in the tank!

I think he's trying to be a goldfish but only in the dark because he's embarrassed lol

LOL i meant to correct that but ran out of time - he does this during the day, everyday, several times, sometimes for an hr...but i've also seen him do this at night when the lights are off lol so i don't think its attention hes after

he's perfecting his goldfish skills while they sleep lol

My big one does the exact same thing. Actually has a white spot on his nose from rubbing the acrylic. Strange...

I've had Peru for a yr...he used to play dead when i went near the tank...like i seriously thought he was dead - i would be getting the net ready to scoop him out when he would finally move!! LOL

he's only been dancing for a few months, even coming near my hand when i put his food in the tank has been the last few months...takes time for them to adjust i guess:ssmile:
