Multie 'cleaning' shells

Postby Storiwyr » Fri Jul 20, 2012 1:59 am

This is probably something really common and thus boring to anyone who keeps multies, but I caught this guy cleaning the air out of the shells and was tickled pink by it, managed to catch it on video. :D

Thanks for the heads up. I'll upload it to youtube instead, then it should be more easily shareable!

This is really cute. I never knew they would pull air from inside the shell, until I watched our favorite documentary. And now you've captured it too! Funny little fish :D

That there is Percy the Boss Multie.

He also likes to dig and spit sand everywhere ... I have tried to film him doing so many times, but the little punk won't perform. I get my phone, sit down, get all ready, and Mr. Spitting-Sand-Like-A-Boss-For-The-Last-Three-Hours just floats there, staring at me, like he's saying, "Oh yeah? Whachoo gonna do 'bout it?"
