Just kidding of course but I've never experienced anything like that.
Then again, the only time there is a diff. light source is when I do water changes with a standing lamp over the tank. They're only inerested in trying to hide out while I siphon the gravel.
I fear you are right, my fish ARE weird. When I siphon the gravel my Barbs and Gourami are by the siphon like "Hey, what are you doing?" I actually have had to take my other hand and scoot them away because I am afraid the suction could hurt them. Once I had a Barb swim up into the gravel tube but he came back out. Almost gave me a heart attack though.
I wish I could get a picture right now. They are in the light with their heads down, tails up and backs facing me. They are all kind of lined up so it is kind of like a chorus line but they are facing the plants, not me. Even the Oto's are sucking things in the light. Maybe I should turn the heat up?
