Two dreams in a week...
My White Clouds were spawning for the first time, and eggs were being spread all through the Lilaeopsis. I was ecstatic, near bouncing with joy, because this was my first time having any spawn (besides snails!). I went to bed, deciding whatever happens happens, they know what they're doing, and they don't need my monitoring them. I woke up about 6ish, threw the covers off, and ran to the tank, reminiscent of a child on Christmas. The minnows looked hungry, a few eggs were eaten, so I fed them, and started my morning.... I woke up again, and the immediate thought in my morning-bleared mind was "I need to check on those minnows!" But, it was a dream, with no spawn at all.
And then this morning I dreamt all the minnows were panicky; I did a head count, and found the school was missing one. I asked them what happened, and they swarmed me with all their small voices. I told them, "Calm yourselves, one at a time." They explained that one of theirs had been sucked up against the Tetra Whisper. So I stuck my arm in the tank, with all the little fish around my hand, watching and murmuring, and unstuck the filter from the back of the tank, and shook it. No minnow fell from the intake grate, so I unplugged it, and took the filter apart, and these little ground fish bits went all over the tank, and were speedily ingested by the other minnows. Which led me to wondering about their integrity, and how exactly that minnow was sucked in the filter, and I passed that tank with caution throughout the dream.
I got up, and related the dream. They said, "And you don't get freaked out that your fish talk to you??"
"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing it is stupid."
