Dive bomber Tetras
Thought I'd post this here since it's just kind of a funny and not a serious topic.
There was a snail on my back pane in the tank this am. The Silver tipped Tetras were dive bombing the snail as he moved down the glass towards the substrate. They would come from the surface as I was feeding them and bump the snail at an angle and shoot back to the top.
Koodos to the snail. He never dislodged and he was hauling butt to the substrate. I didn't know they could move that fast.

It's really cool what takes place in an aquarium. I wish I hadn't waited so long to get back in to it. And I'm really glad I went live plants. This is just too cool...

they look frail untill they are crossing the road,then they leg it.

some of these fish we keep are truly fiesty little buggers. I was also amazed at my snail's personality and speed when it was alive.
