I just saw Splash leaning into the filter intake on my 5g Fluval spec V! He just swam up looked at it, let himself be sucked in by it for a few seconds and swam off again. It was clearly intentional and he wasnt stuck (its a really gentle flow) but ive never seen fish do this before although i have heard of it once. Im tempted to be amused by it saying my fish does it for fun but I cant help but be worried that theres a darker underlying reason (him trying to expel parasites, being too weak yo swim and thus using it to rest, etc.) Any thoughs?
