The fish are watching...

Have you ever wondered if our fish watch us as much as we watch them? I notice quite often that they congregate and are seemingly staring at me and discussing amongst themselves. I wonder if they mimick the comments"oh! oh! look at that one" or "wow did you see what that one did"
I know I sure have said it to them quite often.

I sit and wonder how smart my fishies really are, with the amazing things you see them do in that little tank. I bet they wonder just what the heck I am doing sometimes. I know if I sit at the computer for a while my puffer comes to the glass, looking like, ok, enough computer, time for some dinner! Haha!

Not just us, but other pets, like cats and dogs? "There's the big fuzzy one who tries to eat our food ." "Here comes the tall one--oh, OH! bloodworms!?!?! Oh please, oh please oh please" ....

Anyway, my cichlids definitely check me out whenever I'm in the livingroom. And I don't think it just has to do with begging for food either! I get the sense that they're actually observing me while I'm watching TV or reading the paper.

One of my angels (RIP) used to do this regularily. Walk by tank, he swam with you. Stare into tank, he stared right back. We even played "follow the finger". I don't know if he was watching us because he was curious as to what we were or, maybe thought we were food??? Makes you think...don't it?
