I've got 3 ancistrus fish and 1 angelfish. Ever since I moved my aquarium to a place where I see it most of the time I'm at home I've been making
crazy observations of my angel fish. It seems to be far too intelligent for a fish. For example it can beg food. It does this by swimming to the upper
right corner of the aquarium. Then it makes this crazy movement for a long time. At first I thought it just learned to associate this with food, but
the thing is that it doesn't come to the surface before I actually open the fish food can. Also it doesn't do this when nobody is in the room.
Well anyways after I move next to the aquarium the fish just stays still and stares at me. It's crazy. This one time I did everything normally but
then didn't give any food for it (I feed it by hand quite often). After a little while it turned around and splashed some water out of the aquarium.
Surely a coincidence? Haha.
No good links, just en.wikipedia.org...
Maybe you guys can share some stories?
quote from en.wikipedia.org...
"Many hobbyists consider angelfish to be a relatively intelligent fish, able to recognize their owners."
I'm not crazy
