I've noticed, with my angelfish and discus, they seem to definitely respond to hearing my voice in particular (not so much my girlfriend or anyone else). I sometimes just sit and watch them, and they act normally but if I begin to talk to them they move to whatever side of the tank I am on and watch me and it seems like, attempt to swim out to me. Maybe I'm just insane, but anybody else have this happen?

Haha, no worries, your no more insane then the rest of us I'm sure
My Angel, Plattys, and Dwarf Gourami(and Honey Gourami when she feels up to it)all respond to me approaching their tank and walking about. As all my tanks are in my room, I'm usually greeted with the site of my Angel and occasionally the others swimming around the side of the tank closest to my bed in the morning, becoming more excited when I actually get out of bed.
I do talk to my fish, but by the time I do talk they're already all excited that I'm by the tank . I'll have to try that out and see if I can get them to respond to just my voice

Same here. My fish all crowd to the front of the tank when I put my face near it. It's like having your very own fan club.

I tell myself that it has nothing to do with the food LOL.

My two Boseman Rainbows are always the first to swim over, closely followed by the green tiger barbs.

Ditto here to when I approach the tank. Anyone else walking up to the tank is totally ignored but when I walk near the tank the fish go crazy. Especially the guppies and my bettas (Reno, my crowntail, in particular). Spook, my Ctenopoma, always comes out to greet me.

With my angels I liken it to the seagulls in Finding Nemo: Mine? Mine? Mine? Mine? Mine? Mine?

my fish get so excited whenever I come near the tank, whether I feed them or not, but I will have to check to see if they respond to my voice as well.

I have a 15gal tank with about 80 endler fry in it. They all jam into the corner closest to me whenever they see me.
