I wonder how many other fish enthusiasts do the same things. I get a great deal of pleasure observing the fish. You learn their personality, so to speak. Some are docile, others more aggressive, within the same group of fish.
Very entertaining for me. My biggest single thrill continue to be... FRY! I love it when I see them. I currently have 4 and I am rooting for them. They seem to hang out in the top left hand side of the tank where I have let the leaves of the VAL over grow and bunch up at the surface. They hid here. So far, they are a healthy size and I think they will make it. I was going to try to isolate them in a breeding tank but figured it would be next to impossible to catch them and I would damage the plants and traumatize all the other fish in the tank trying.
These prefer to stay near the surface. I think they have learned it is easier to get food there.
I typically spend 30 minutes to an hour every other day with my nose pressed against the glass. As I have said before, my favourite fish by far are my Red Wag Platy. They seem like a very nice, hardy and friendly fish and I just love their colour.
