I thought it might be fun to have a thread of funny things we've seen in our tanks.
I'll start, and see if anyone joins in....
1. Surfin' Snail. Ramshorns often float around the tank. This one was hanging 10 (1?) in the middle of an inch long, bright green val leaf, swooping around in the current like a pro surfer.
2. Red Cherry Surrender. Looking into the tank one day, something caught my eye. It was a red cherry shrimp with a bit of white debris stuck to a foreleg. He was standing on a wooden twig, shaking his leg up and down -- looking for all the world like a soldier waving a white flag. I laughed out loud, then cried -- the pathos got to me. Do you think he was really giving up?
3. The Dodge. Once at feeding time, I saw a tetra floating peacefully with a flake in its mouth. Zooming in for the attack from below were not one, but TWO fast danios. One from the lower left and one from the lower right -- oblivious to each other. At the _very_ last moment the tetra twitched out of the way and the danios smacked into each other at full speed. Kung-Tetra-Fu.
