As soon as Odysseus sees the pellet soaking dish move in front of his tank, he swims to the feeding area and starting doing a celebratory dance "Woohoo! Food Time!!!". Sometimes he gets so caught up in it that he doesn't notice the pellet dropping down until after its on the bottom and then he's like "Woah, how did I miss THAT?".
At night, I cover half the tank with a towel to block some of the light (so that he has 12 hours of relative darkness) and to protect him from any drafts from the fan in my room, and every time his swims to the opposite end of the tank and goes bananas for a few seconds before getting curious about the dark area in the tank. I picture him throwing a temper tantrum going "I won't! I won't! I won't! You can't make me go to bed!....Oooh, cave! Better check it out!"
Both of these behaviours were down pat within two days of getting him.
