It's fun to go swim over to the rock with some goggles on, then go under the water and sit on the rock. All the fry will come over and nibble on you and see what you are doing. It's really fun,
That would be pretty cool.

When I was like 8 I was swimming in a local lake and was swimming under water with goggles on. It was an old abandoned rock quarry so about 100 ft from shore there's a very sharp drop off. Well I'm swimming along this ridge and outta the deep dark water comes this huge musky and swims right past me like I'm not even there. Lemme tell you as an 8 year old coming face to face with a fish that was probably about as long as I was at the time was absolutely terrifying lol. In retrospect it was pretty dang cool.

My puffer will take a chunk out of my arms if I am aquascaping for too long- it's creepy- 2 teeth marks on top, 2 on the bottom and a circular beak bruise surrounding it, and yes, there is blood drawn. He's patient, though, he likes to be right under my hand when I reach in HIS tank to clean up things that he kills, but after an hour of playing with rocks he gets mad and starts nipping at my elbows. People have asked me on more then one occasion what is wrong with my arms, I laugh and tell them my fugu did it and walk away. He will not let anyone but me reach in his tank, he has jumped to try to bite my husband and several friends, mean little tiny thing!!
