odd question...puffers attracted to jewelry?
I do not have a saltwater tank, but I visit the ones at the lfs
. Anyway, they had just gotten a new puffer (the thing is UGLY). I put my hand up to the glass, and the puffer came over, rubbing it's head on the glass like a puppy would. I moved my hand, and it followed. I realized it wasn't following my index finger, but my second finger. I switched hands, and it ignored it, swimming away. I put my first hand back up, and it was back, rubbing against the glass. The only difference is my hand has a black opal on it.
Anyway, does anyone else have similar experiences? Do saltwater fish react to jewelry? Thanks.
