little guy just loves to watch me wherever I am in the room, he'll do
anything to get my attention. And when I look at him he flares out his
gills and dances from side to side just hoping that I'll come over to
play. If I drop food in the aquarium he'll ignore it and hope to play. I
have to walk away to get him to go find the food which has floated away
by then. That said, in another tank I have a second Blood Parrot
Cichlid that loves me but doesn't want to be touched. It's like having
one dog and one cat. You just have to love the differences.
