I just need to take a minute to say how much I love my fish.

So, let me start by saying I had a really bad night last night. I know a lot of people on this forum have anxiety issues in some way, shape or form, so I know I don't need to go into detail for y'all to know where I'm coming from here. So needless to say, I spent a lot of time planted in front of the tank, just chillin' with my fish.

Marley.. oh man. S/he (I'm starting to think it's male now.. lmao the gender changing fish, I swear) is starting to get wicked FEISTY! He bolts up to the edge of the tank when I approach, no matter where he is, and gives me his best grumpy face. I put my finger in the tank to see what he'd do. At first he kind of flared and went to inspect it, swimming around it and nipping at me. He seemed really confused but not at all frightened. If anything, he was pretty darn determined to figure out what it was. I started moving my hand around and he'd stay really still and let me run my finger lightly along the edge of his belly. After we did this a few times, he not only started to chase off Floyd every time he approached us by the divider, but actually started to "dance" with my finger! Literally, he would nip at my finger and then kind of curl around it and I would kind of "pet" him, and he was loving it! I mean, he really loved it. I can't rationalize this any way. He was totally digging this dance.

This morning he was eager to pick right back up where we left off. I'm starting to worry he has a crush on my finger...Uh oh. I couldn't get over it, though. I was laughing so hard. I had my grandmother looking at me like I was nuts when I explained it to her. You guys would understand a little better than she did, but she seemed pretty fascinated by the experience.

Anyway, I included pictures, because he's really getting some gorgeous iridescence and I was eager to show off a little.

And here's Floyd, because he looked a little put out by all the attention I was giving Marley (think he's feeling a touch of only child syndrome).

Lol thanks! I'm excited about how he's going to end up marbling, but I'm afraid I may have to start locking the windows at night... *gulp* ;]

So far he's the only one who will lol Floyd will come up to investigate, but if I get close, he bolts. He always watches my "dance" with Marley, I wonder what he's thinking! =P
