Squirting dwarf gourami


One of my dwarf gouramis has developed the ability to squirt little streams of water when I feed my fish, trying to shot the food out of my hand. It's like an Archer fish except he can only shoot about an inch in the air. It's quite cute

Has anybody seen this happen before?

I had one that used to do that often, he usually would try to get moths that landed on the water lol it is very cute. He also would go and pull snails off the front glass when he was bored too.

Heh they are very entertaining fish. I have two males in my 55g. For about six months they totally occupied their time building bubble nests and raiding each other's bases to steal grass for their own nest. They've gotten out of the mood for nests now but I hope they go back to it someday.
