I saw my pleco fart last night. I am still wondering if my eyes were playing tricks on me so I'd like to know
How many of you have witnessed any fishy flatulence?

I know cories get extra oxygen by going to the surface getting a mouthfull and then they swallow it and it is absorbed while passing through the intestines and the excess is passed out like gas. I imagine other fish may do this as well
