Not a fish but i found it funny. I just watched a Ramshorn snail slide off the end of a leaf and float gracefully downwards for about 10 seconds barely dropping in level before finding another plant leaf. I didn't know snails could do that.

I used to have an orange crayfish that would climb up to the top of the fake plants and then try to jump onto fish swimming below him. Best picture I got is below, he tried to jump onto the Nicaraguan (see his reflection below the crayfish's reflection), but he got stuck on a piece of the plant. A few times, he did manage to land on a them, but the fish would dart away and he'd just float down to the bottom like it was the cool thing to do.

When I kept my apple snails and rabbits in the tank with my elephant nose fish he use to roll them over to the filter housing and pile them on top of each other when it was time to feed him, if they moved he would take them straight back talk about not wanting to share!

My female gardneri killi had recently started rapidly biting my arm when I have it in the tank, kind of tickles!

My fish are smart enough to know wen I am about to feed them, but they are so dumb that they will repeatedly try to eat the same peace of poop. How can something be so smart but so dumb?

Yeah and the same one will try over and over. I mean it doesn't even swim off and come back later.
