Oh, Im so guilty of that!
Deep down, i know that their animals, and im 99.7% sure that they have no cognitive thought, but i just cant help but be drawn to a world where they do actually understand us, like/hate us, thank us for feeding them, and curse us for late water changes.

If not playing, what would you call it?

most of the time when people think their fish are playing they are witnessing aggressive behavior of one form or another. Not all aggressive behavior is bad, but it's aggressive nonetheless. "the fish are playing tag" is a common one. No they aren't....

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Makes sense, aggressive behavior is what makes a pecking order.
If only humans were as simple to figure out!
