Talking Funniest things done by your fishy friends?

Recently I caught my Apple Snail catching a bit of "fresh air" on the filter outlet! So now I wonder, what else there is that our aquatic friends doing that makes us laugh? Post it!!

My bumblebee catfish is named Tumble because he grabs the sinking wafers and rolls and tumbles them into his cave. Makes me laugh every time

My Betta just "laid down" on a bunch of anubias with his fins all spread out, like he was relaxing on the couch.

One of my guppy fry tried to eat another younger fry and choked. I walked up and saw a tail sticking out of his mouth. Didnt know a fish's eyes could turn red!!! But I think I had an undiscovered breed of possessed guppies though.....

when I was a kid family friends had a snail named "suicide Sally" who would climb to the surface jump off to slowly float down to her doom again and again

my oscars do a 'Tokyo Drift' sideways movement across the tank. they get some impressive momentum going.
also, i have seen them do headstands and the tiger likes to lay on the red's head! lol! x

Mine does that all the time!! Sometimes I hear a loud 'bang!' when he lands on his shell; and it's even scarier this time as my new tank is 80cm high!

And there's also a morning gymnastics:

A Dragonfly nymph got into my tank somehow a few months ago, my two Rams both tried to eat it at the same time and played tug of war with it, til it got ripped in half. A little sadistic, but i found it hilarious.

Also the other day I threw in some broken up algae wafers. My BN Pleco started eating one, then one my Amanos swooped in, stole the wafer, and swam away as fast as it could.

Lol I always got cracked up when my hatchetfish ate because he would just cruise along the top eating tiny pieces of flakes, but then he'd suddenly suck in a piece bigger than his head lol

When I used to have a dwarf gourami, I was cleaning the tank with the lid off and decided to feed them. I had the flakes in my hand and was about to put them in when the DG spit water at me! Lol
