I caught my Sailfin plec doing the smartest thing ever the other day. I have 3 four-line pims that harass the plecs at feeding time. If the pims so much a see the plecs near a flake of food, they chase them away. Yesterday, I noticed the Sailfin slowly go up the glass, and once it reached the top of the water, flip over on it's belly. It skimmed the water upside down eating flakes before they could fall. I thought it was the cutest and smartest thing. Since it's getting the flakes on the top, the pims won't harass it, and have no clue it is eating before they do!

And "they" say fish are dumb and stupid.

Near enough is not good enough, therefore good enough is not near enough, and only your best will do.
