FFE: For Fish Entertainment

What do you use to keep your fish busy/entertained? Bubble stones, floating things.?? I put plastic beads in, some float some sink, the ones that float get whooshed around by the filter and everyone loves to chase them around. The are too big to eat though.

For my guppies, I feed them. Let's face facts, there's like a bakers dozen in there, and they seem to keep themselves plenty entertained to begin with.

For my gourmi's, My fiancee working at her computer seems to provide them hours of entertainment. They'll just sit and watch her for hours. (I'm not kidding.) The white clouds in that tank are to Zen to need entertainment, as far as I can tell.

I mess with my fish by putting my finger at the surface. The beads sound fun though. My Betta loves the filter current and swims in it a lot.

Walk by, they go crazy following us around and they really like when the kids sit and stare at them I think they are doing a play maybe even putting on a circus.

I test my water! I keep the supplies on the edge of my stand while testing, and they all swim up to the front and watch, then when I put in the test tube to get the water, they swarm it like it's a new fish! I actually had a guppy get inside it once!

I had a jaguar cichlid (managuense) who loved his small, round rock. He'd move all the gravel in his tank over to one side then roll his rock up the gravel hill, let it roll back down, then roll it back. He'd do this for hours.

Our pygmy cory cats play with empty snail shells. We have one who has a bit of a belly compared to the others, it like to hide in a shell and "pounce" another pygmy that swims by.

Our JDs play with an amazon sword leaf. They do a relay thing, passing it off to the other one as they swim the tank.
