It's right up there up on the list of the most amazing things I've ever seen lol. One of the holding maingano spit into some fake low "growing" plant stuff (kinda like a carpet)that I had put in the tank along with a pile of black rocks for spitting a few days prior. She only spit a few 4-5 the fist spit. Most of them went right down into the plant but one kept trying to get back into her mouth. She kept backing away from it but finally gave in and let it back inside her mouth. After chasing some other fish away from her spot she went back and spit again. There was even more than the one she let back in come out the second time. I had to leave for work so couldn't finish watching but what I did see was simply amazing. :dancing:

Very cool to see isn't it. :)
My first ever hold was a Red Empress, i transfered her to a tank of her own the minute i noticed she was holding and for a few weeks i watched her until she finally spat. For a few days she took good care if them sucking them back up whenever someone went near the tank. Then she snacked on a few of the poor things so i pulled her out and was left with 20.

Congrats on the sighting :thumb:
