does your fish watch you?

my little sudi likes to watch me from time to time especially when I'm playing the sims haha. I sit up in bed with my laptop and hes right next to me so he sees everything that goes on. I chose to set him up on my nightstand cause I heard that fish like interaction keeps them active or something.

Yeah, mine too, sometimes i wonder if he entertains me or i entertain him.. i think is the latter. I have noticed that when i don't pay him attention, he faces me straight up all flared up as if he were facing another betta, and when i get back to him he returns to normal, and swims quickly behind the plant, he likes hide 'n seek, always moving around to keep the plant between him and me.

I have NOT lost my mind.. It's backed up on the server (and the Network is down again..)

Yep. I am sitting near Sakura and she is watching me. I will feel bad when she has to go to my room. She is such a social butterfly! She is sitting in the dining room/kitchen area now.

Oh yes, they do. Gutless will often swim up to see what I'm doing before swimming around his plant, while Arteri will swim up and watch me for as long as he possibly can. Wong Foo is unusual because he doesn't do this as much. I'm not sure, though, because I'll look at him watching me, and then he'll notice and turn around or hide.

Every time I go up to Rose's tank, she stares at me until I freak out! She would just stay there not even moving. It's creepy.
