I just had a heart attack! (not literally)

I've had the same big piece of driftwood in Tango's tank since forever. It has holes all over it but I had no idea how deep they were or that they were connected.

I was sitting here at my computer and I saw Tango totally disappear into one hole on the side of it that's about the size of a ping pong ball. Just his tail tip was hanging out. I had a heart attack. I thought he was stuck. I jumped up to look and there's another hole in the front about the size of a nickle or maybe a quarter. I could see his head in it and he saw me and swam OUT that hole, looking all proud of himself. Darn daredevil. My hands were shaking and I swear he was grinning.

All this time I've been wondering how he keeps tearing his tail. I think I just figured it out.

I had a "heart attack" experience yesterday, myself, when I accidently knocked over Fernansdo's cup, with him in it, on the floor. Talk about scary!

I know, right? That's waaaaay scarier!

About an hour after I posted this he was laying sideways across the hole with his tail all draped on the wood and I'm telling you guys, he was looking RIGHT at me. Like..."Am I gonna do it? Do you see me? I'm near the hole again! Think I'm gonna rip my tail again? Watch me now!"

He sounds like a character! I've dropped the little TANK with the fish in it before, when they were all in 1 gallons! THAT was scary!
