I have now noticed the fry swimming in the current. They do this most of the day, I am assuming it is either in hopes of finding food bits or to strengthen themselves. Kind of like working out?

My Mystery snails are weird too. They crawl to the top of the tank and then just sort of let go and glide to the bottom. Sometimes they bounce off of plants or wood on the way down. They seem to do it on purpose and repeat this effort often. I don't know if it is just meant to be fun or what it is about but it is funny to watch.

I love the snails' suddenly-dropping-to-the-bottom thing they do.

My convict cichlid has always lived alone and my girlfriend and I are his only school. So he craves attention. Sometimes, he will do backflips if you are in the room and not looking at him. And he will swim to the side of the aquarium I point to even if I am several feet away. And although he can easily knock the mystery snail that lives with him off the glass with his mouth he tries to do it by whipping water at it with his tail which is funny to watch.
