What is my Clown doing? *picture included*

Ok, I have to ask what in the world is my silly clown doing? He did this several times today like he was trying to eat something out of the air? His head goes completely out of the water, Is he just playing and being a goof or?

*(it happened to be a really neat picture to lol)*













thanks in advance

That is an awesome picture, I have no idea what he is doing. I've never seen a clown do that. Maybe someone else will know....

I'm not sure either but i do know and i'm not quite sure why exactly but every fish i have had that has done that for extended periods of time is sick and usually ends up dead but obviously that's not your case

He's trying to talk to the whale. C'mon, you've seen the movie.

That's a fantastic picture though. My guess is that he's just goofing off

LOL!

I've seen my o. clown do this whenever I put my hand above the water because she thinks I am going to put food in the tank.

I'm gonna go try it right now. Nope. They didn't do it. But I've seen them do it before.

I don't know if this is good or bad. But I think it's ok.

They are known to spit at people or just being a clown.

I can add that my clowns have done that for the year that I've had them and they are still going strong.

Do you have a lid on the tank? If he sees something up there he might think it's food and try and pick it off the cover glass. I had a rainbowfish that figured out how to do that, I couldn't figure out what the weird thunking noise coming from the tank was until I saw her look up, eyeball the flake stuck to the glass and then stick her head out of the water and pick it right off.
