Interesting behaviors and personalities

With so many experienced fish keepers with they're respective fish we're bound to see and notice our fish doing some interesting things and behaving in ways we never expected. So share what you've seen and maybe we will learn something cool!

My small dojo follows the big one around like its his father. They play with each other and it's quite interesting to watch!

Sometimes my GBR will follow around my cory's like he is a catfish too and sometimes the catfish follow him. It's fun to watch and it's the only time when the GBR isn't attacking everything else n the tank lol.

My gbrs would school with the Angels some times when they were all small. I thought it was so funny.

My ottos used to school with my zebra danios when I had them in my 180g.

The Cory cats do the Cory cat conga. They swim in straight lines along the front of the tank right up to the power head which shoots them across the tank and then they line up and do it again. It's like a water park for them.

I could tell stories for days of weird loachy stuff from every species I've kept... they're some of the quirkiest fish in the hobby In particular though our new kubotai likes to swim upside down across the tank like a certain species of african catfish

I wonder if they think this stuff up (like 'today I'm going swim in circles') or pick it up from imitating other fish?

Could be a fantastic research topic! Too bad there's more money in my aquarium budget than there is funding for research into loaches....
