Odd fish behavior

So a couple of my fish exhibit odd behavior from time to time and I'd like to see if anyone else has some funny acting fish. To clarify I don't mean unhealthy, just kind of different.

My 6 line wrasse likes to sleep in the output side of my skimmer.

My Oscar likes to carry his feeders around before he decides to eat them.

That's cool! When my hands go into my tank my elephant nose swims in & out off them, he also has a habit off swimming backwards at my hand & flapping his tail at me till I touch him. He makes pwc longer than they should be lol

Lol that's funny, I've seen a few elephant noses at my lfs and thought about getting them, but I'm not too keen on their care requirements, tank size, etc. so I've always decided against.
