My cichlids get extremely excited when I get near the tank because I usually feed them. You can almost see them wiggle in excitement, it's funny to watch and they school to the top in the area where the food usually drops.
My dwarf frog does strange acrobatics, even for a frog. He stands on his head, floats in the air stone bubbles, balances himself upright with his legs spread, etc. He actually jumped out of the tank at the pet store and started hopping across the floor even though he's 100% aquatic.
I had a betta once ages ago that wouldn't die. It had faced deathly circumstances it's entire life just from one mishap or another and it lived for over a year. Once I found the tank had been pushed on the floor when my home was broken into and the betta was lifeless on the floor. The cat (which for some reason adored that fish and never tried to harm it but loved to sleep curled around the bowl and would protect it from the other cats) was carrying on noisely while standing over it. I pulled it out of the carpet and threw it in some water while I tried to salvage the tank etc. The betta did a little gagging motion, spit out (cat!) hair, and lived many more moons. Bizarre!
