Crazy Fish - anyone else got some??

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about how some fish are just crazy and act oddly at times.

This is a corydoras I have and when I got her she had a short stumpy tail (which is now all grown back) but this made her stay on her own quite abit from the other corys for quite a few months.

She used to like to sleep on a Java Moss Ball which was hung up near the top of the tank on a golden vine branch. She is the only cory I have ever had that likes to sleep on a comfy java moss bed.

Her name is Snowball (as she is white and likes to sleep on a moss ball)

I am glad to report she is now hanging out with the other corys.

Anyone else have any crazy fish pics?

We have a Oscar that loves watching TV,when you stand in front of the TV he goes crazy swimming up and down the tank with his mouth open as if to say OOOOh I'm watching that move your bum. Loves the soapies so much he won't eat till you turn the TV off. He bangs on the lid if you change channels.

Cute quirky fish stories guys :)

I had an albino long fin bristle nose called Squishy, hence my username :) I never thought a BN would have so much personality, he was only at max 2 1/2cm long, he never grew, all of the other bn's that were bought the same time as him grew quickly, but squishy stayed the same size, he was a little fearless bastard :) he'd attack the huge BN's when he was on the zucchini, and when i would go to the tank he'd swim to the glass where I was and follow me to any side of the tank I would move to. Whenever I used to put my hand in the tank all of the other bn's would swim and hide, but squishy would shoot out of the weeds and swoop down and suction to my hand (even when i would gravel vac). Unfortunately a fish specialist (how laughable.. ) recommended a medication that resulted in squishy dying (along with a few others), seems he was a bit weak, which would explain why he never grew. I shed quite a few tears; he was buried in a pot plant I keep indoors. I miss the little fella :(

That is a cute but sad story. My daughter has an albino one (named SUSHI) and he so friendly she can pat him!

The funny thing he does though is at food time he will come out to the front of the glass, flop over on his side and wait for a disc to pop into his mouth like a tic-tac !!

He makes us laugh everytime.

My old BN in my tank - not near as friendly as hers - but he is lovely. He waits for his zucchini every second day in the special spot I only feed him in. I only give him it every second day, and he knows which day it is. These fish do definately have memories and brains.

that is so cute :) I have noticed albinos are a little more receptive than the commons (perhaps its just my tank experience? i'm not sure) but my commons NEVER wait, and my other LF albino and my normal albino used to wait near where the zucc was put in also. I think they recently proved fish memories are a lot longer than 2secs too (although I think any fish owner could have told them that lol ;)

I love the name of your daughters fish lol I only ever named my LF, Squishy and Squashy, can't tell the rest of them apart from one another.
