I have two stories! Good surprise: My comet used to spend all day trying to peck on the sides of water lettuce. Recently, he has gotten smarter about it. He learned to splash his tail back and forth above the water to flip the water lettuce upside down and get to the supple baby plants. Last week I saw him dive at it from the bottom with his mouth open...Jaws movie style. It gets the entire baby plant in his mouth all at once! I'm impressed by his ingenuity. You can count on a goldfish to figure out how to earn that extra morsel of food! Bad surprise: Once in awhile my itty bitty Fincent would get black lips. I used to think there was some sort of water quality issue (despite awesome parameters) and it kept me testing and changing water all the time. Then one day when he looked 100% orange, I watched him chew some black algae off the java fern... and his lips turned black! ALL THAT WORRY WAS OVER AN ALGAE MOUSTACHE! (He has sort of a cleft upper lip/jaw and now I know things get caught in there.) I want to hear your charming stories too! Please share
