I was talking with my girlfriend last night about when the lights slowly ramp down on my tank to low moon light how the fish all go back to their spots to sleep. I think it's one of the coolest things to watch your tank wake up in the morning, be active all day, then go to sleep at night.

Fish need their rest too so they can entertain you all day

I love how fish have their "beds"

A couple months ago I woke to find that a guppy had jumped into my red eye puffer tank. I was shocked to see that the puffer wasn't attacking him and treated him almost like I've heard oscars treating "pet" goldfish.

Do you mind explaining what you mean about oscars and gold fish? 😊 I hadn't heard about this

Some people will offer goldfish to their oscars as food(which I don't approve of) and sometimes the oscar will form a bond with the goldfish.

I've heard the same of a goldfish in a piranha tank.

Sad that there are piranhas and oscars that are kinder and gentler souls than their owners.... considering that we ought to know better by now. When we adopt the oscar from the university he will never eat a goldfish (but he does and will continue to eat many, many spiders)

For what it's worth, long long ago I witnessed the same thing with a betta and a goldfish in a bowl. (This was before I could have possibly known any better, I was no more than 6 years old)

Piranha unfortunately have quite the same and misplaced reputation as sharks used to have. Not that they can't be vicious, but they are also not an insatiable creature waiting for you to fall in.
