Shari, I am wondering if that is compulsive behavior?  I saw a leopard in a zoo once who did the same thing over and over.  The fish is going between decorations the same way almost every time.

I guess...just can't figure out why??? Or if it's bad???

He doesn't seem to be bothered by anything. He acts normal most of the time. Then once in a while he starts doing this...Hubby thinks he's "ruffling his feathers" and just showing off Wink

Best laugh I've had all day! He's so funny, and the clowns seemed to be playing in the second video too. What a fun tank.
