You mean her? Perry is a girl. Now that's an idea for a thread.

Perry flares at anything. Legos, erasers, my finger, anything. But here's the weird part: Perry doesn't flare at her reflection! She just runs away saying "AAAHHHH!!!! Get this monster out of my territory!!!!" She's staring to mature.

That is so funny!! All my males flare at just about everything, but my black orchid is the only one that will do it for my camera. I only have 2 females that flare at all. Its pretty funny to see them try to be tough!

I tried to train Sushi to swim through a little pipe cleaner hoop and he did it once but I forgot about it after that. But the platy's were acting like hoop swimming aces.
