Haha yeah, conchs are strange. He then proceeded to scoot backwards 3 inches in that position before tipping himself back. Makes me wonder what strange things happen that I don't see.

I was kinda thinking the same thing. How old is your tank?

Mine was, at the time he was climbing the glass, somewhere in its second year.
