Default They're staring at me....

This happened a few weeks ago; but haven't gotten around to posting it. It's been quiet, so maybe this'll spark some conversation

My wife and I were observing our 12 gallon tank, and all seven rasboras were facing us, and not moving; like they were watching us watching them. And they didn't move for something like a couple minutes! How weird!

I mean, when we had a puffer he'd interact with us; as the betta does. Our new betta zooms right to us, flaring away. But other than feeding time the rasboras hadn't really shown an interest in the 'outside world' per se. They haven't shown any since, either.

You could have had that spaghetti sauce near your mouth and they were trying to tell you !!

My fish like huddle up at the top like they're hungry. I feed them daily.

Mine only do that at night, when I turn out the light. They all go to the surface.

Fish are always hungry. I think their instinct tells them if there's food, eat it all up because you never know when more will be found...

I was only joking fishead. If you actually ate spaghetti, that would be weird!! But i can agree with your theory, how they always appear to be hungry.

Who knows, maybe there was something there

Maybe they were just wondering what those two funny looking creatures were that were staring at them.....
