LOL - flag pole tetra?

So a leaf fell off my willow hygro... and I guess it had something tasty on the end because one of my black skirt tetras would NOT let it go! Swam around the tank with a big leaf sticking out of its mouth, trying to eat whatever it was... finally got it after 3 minutes of sucking the stem in and spitting it back out over and over... all while I giggled like a maniac. Fish are so weird.

I got about 30 platy fry and after feeding my dwarf frogs in their tank, I had a bit of bloodworm/brine shrimp mixture left, so I squirted it into the platy tank and one of the fry grabbed a bloodworm like 4x as long as him and was trying to eat it, swimming around with this huge worm for like 5 mins all over the tank trying to hide with it and eat it all to himself and kept dropping it and picking it back up.

20g platy, , 2 x 10g shrimp, 3 x 20g shrimp, 7.5g shrimp and 1 great dane/mastiff puppy.

Haha that's pretty funny to watch.

I had a betta swim around with an algae wafer in his mouth once - he sure looked like a dog with a frisbee!
