Red face Moment of Awwww

So yeah may have heard Drax died recently and now I have Sotto...

Drax was always a lazy swimmer and ... Very catlike in how he would swim then sleep. And if you tried to innocently pet him during feeding he'd freak out.

SOTTO on the other hand... Omg he's so puppy like. All he does is swim around the tank and through all the fauna and the cave like it's a big obstacle coarse and during the last feeding. I attempted a little pet with my finger... He didn't freak but immediately turned around and bopped my finger with his head playfully. Then from the outside he followed my finger around for awhile, something Drax would never do.

It's just so weird... Drax would always scare all the other fish and shrimp but Sotto seems to just calmly mingle with them. While Drax would flare and nip if a Tetra crossed his path, Sotto seems to just swim around them without the tetra even flinching.

Hmmm I dunno... Was just depressed about the dog being gone again and how I don't have a pet I can truly interact with... Then Sotto started playing follow the finger... Just... Made me feel better.
