I enjoy pwc, when I,ve got my hands in the tank my elephant nose chases & circles your hands backwards, then he let's you touch his tail & then he starts all over again lol makes pwc last longer than necessary!

I had an open top tank, (yeah I have a lid now), we had a bumble bee catfish. I have an aquaclear filter. I changed it from a marineland 150B. His name was waldo. after I switched filters I kept hearing the sound of a fish leaving the water/jumping out of the tank. I ran into the tank room, and nothing, not a water drop anywhere, no fish out of water. This continued for an entire week, they my guppies started to go missing? Then I happen to filp on the lights and just before I turn away from the tank. I see out the corner of my eye, waldo sliding down the output spout like a slip'nslide! and the sound! its the sound I was hearing! I didn't figure out what he was doing until I cleaned the filter. the little poop waldo was hiding in the filter and then attacking them, dragging them in the filter! Ugh! he was re-homed fast.

I figured out he was the one dragging them in the filter because they were whole in the filter housing, They weren't shredded by the filter. I caught him trying for a female platy then I had enough! he is terrorizing someone elses tank now.
