What wierd stuff do your fish do?

Thought I'd start a thread on wierd fish behavior. I've had this Midas Blenny for about a year. He's huge. Monster Midas Blenny in a way. He's about 6 inches......no kidding.

A few months back I noticed him do something that I thought was just a coincidence. I was wrong, it's on purpose. When I would approach the tank to feed, he would get really aggressive in his movements in the tank than poop near the top. And we're not talking a nice solid pooh. It's an all out stream of diarhea streamed across the top of the tank. It's skimmed out pretty quick though.

Anywho, it has gotten even wierder. When I put the food in (A nice mash of home made stuffs) he rushes to the middle of the food cloud and craps right in it. TOTALLY gross. And to make matters worse, my angel has taken a liking to his foulness

So, I have a Midas Blenny that $hits where he eats to claim the grub.

Anything interesting going on in your tank?

I have a dwarf gourami that wrestles with a Yoyo loach. They literally shove each other around.

Hate to be the poor tang at the end of that congo line

Here's a thought. If fish like to eat pooh, and I like to eat fish, than that means

Both my Lawnmower Blenny & my Midas Blenny like to perch on my cucumber that has taken residence on the top of the front of the tank. Something about those Blennies......

Btw would love to see a pic of your large Midas.

That's funny, I have been on dives in lava caves in Hawaii and the ceiling was covered in upside down lion fish.
