Silly Guppies!

I was cleaning out the fishtank today and my hand was sitting in the water for a minute (I like to see what the fish will do). The guppies are just swimming right around my hand like it was nothing and then Spot (our little yellow with black spot guppy) swims over and is rubbing the side of his head on my finger! Two times even!

Maybe that just means "Get away" in guppy language but I thought it was SO cute! I love my guppies (and yes all my other fish too)!

That is really cute! We used to have a huge tank full of guppies but they kept eating each other...

Eating each other? @@ Eeee our danios all chased each other to death (except one who swims like mad around the tank now). Thankfully our guppies seem to be good friends, where ever one goes the others follow.

Tonight they are confused as to why they can't swim through the glass and around the rest of what they see. They are trying REALLY hard though! lol

Yeah, they ate each other...

That'd be so funny seeing them try to swim out through the glass!

They spent a good part of the evening trying to find a way to swim through the glass. They were swimming all around the upper part of the tank trying.

I think it's so cute they aren't really afraid of us. Then again neither are the whiptail catfish we have. They are too lazy to be afraid of us.

Awh that's cute!! Word of warning when cleaning your tank if they like to come around your hand alot. We accidently crushed our female betta because she just loved human attention and wanted to be petted. My mom didn't notice her around her hand when she placed a big rock down and accidently crushed her. So be very careful.

I'm always very careful where my fish are. We have a lot of bottom feeders so I'm always looking out for if someone is in the way. Same thing when I plant new plants or move old ones around. I don't want to accidently bury someone! :o
