Maybe he's trying to tell you the temperature in his tank (lol) but to be serious...... I don't know

that means he's basking in the heat of the heater (and it's working) or it could be a sign that the rest of his tank is still too chilly. IF it's only the occasional visit I wouldn't be concerned.

Mine hangs out by the thermometer - it's on the opposite side from the heater. He's there mostly because of his bubble nest (he's an old hen) and also because hiding behind the thermometer means he's "invisible," hehe.

Do you have any hidey-spots for your fish? And is your thermometer by the heater or somewhere else?

One of my fish (the one with the thermometer on his side) just loves it, swimming up and down and around it. Small spaces, I guess. If I take it out, like for water changes, he looks all over for it. It's his favorite toy.

I think its because the thermometer is all shiny and reflective, gives them something to look at (like a TV) lol!

I had one that used to rest on top of the thermometer. They like to squeeze between the thermometer and the side of the tank.
