OH NO! SHE'S.. sleeping.

I am sooo guilty of waking up sleeping fish. Like I get so freaked out, cause I automatically assume the fish would be.. Dead. I feel so bad lol D:

Does anyone else do this?

I think I've done it a few times...once my mom came in and asked me if my fish was dead, I freaked out and ran over to the tank...only to find to my intense relief that he was just snoozing...the he wanted food cause I woke him up...that made me feel really guilty XD

Yep. He's got a cozy snoozin' pad near the back of the tank in amongst the silk plants. It drives me crazy because I can't see him when he goes in there.

Fortunately, when he's a wake there's no doubt he's alive. As soon as he sees me, he zooms to the front of the tank and goes straight into *wiggle*wiggle*feedmefeedme* dancing XD

I.... might have just tapped my poor boy lightly on the head and he was not pleased about it :/ Opps I just had a super stressful day at work and I came home to him looking tangled and not breathing in the plants at the top of the tank. Turns out... he was fine with that.

Robert fell asleep staring out of the tank at me last night. All my roommates thought he was dead, so I had a lot of fun flailing around in front of him and then finally doing jazzhands in front of his face to demonstrate that he was, in fact, asleep. xD

I always accidentally wake them up worried they're sick. One day they'll kill me.

XD all these stories make me laugh, i've never seen mine sleeping, and if it was and my aunt was over, she'd probably FREAK OUT if she saw him sleeping and then woke him up as soon as she tried to take him out XD

One of mine likes to hang face down in his plants. The first time he did it, I was sure he was dead. He was miffed when I disturbed him. I think they like to scare us!

LOL! Omg I have never laughed so hard from a thread before xD

Yeah.. They sure do like to trick us, don't they? Take my girl Heather.. She was my first betta EVER.. When I had a failed sorority (stupidly put a sick girl in with the sorority) she was the first to get sick, we thought she would be the first to die, but she was the only one that survived! Now she has her own cozy 2g vase.. But anyways, she sleeps on her side, up at the very top of the tank.

Can fish hear us? Cause I tell her " You're grounded for scaring me that way Missy! Now go to your cave! "
LOL!
