Exclamation Clicking sound in tank!

So I was watching a movie... and i heard this clicking sound coming from my 75 gal turtle tank. I unplugged everything and the sound was still happening, like an erratic click. The turtles are asleep, so it wasn't them. I think it might have been the chinese algae eater? I know many saltwater fish, and many catfish can make clicking noises... anyone ever heard of CAE making clicks? I'm just paranoid and don't want the tank to suddenly break, causing a mess... I can hear it again...

There was only 3 clicks this time... It's coming from the side of the tank the CAE is on... so I'm hoping it's that, and not a crack forming...

Man this is something you'd read on a reef forum

Do you have any glassware that might be getting kicked around?

Yes, lemme know if you found the first FW stomatopod, I have dibs on it when you get thunked in the finger.



Joking aside, I sure hope the tank isn't cracking, update on that?

That was my question.

My loaches all clicked all the time.

They have spines in their jaw area they click, mine would click especially when fighting with each other for food.

Hello,
Skunk botia loaches will click at each other when they are mad or showing off, took me forever to figure that one out as it was not often. I don't think i ever herd a algae eater do it but im sure its possible.

There are no rocks... just some golf balls, and it wasn't golf balls clanking around.. no live plants, just a reptile bulb a few hours a day (it was off) I have 2 turtles, CAE, and 2 kuhli loaches (i think they're still alive) I've never heard this sound before, and haven't heard it since the first couple of times tonight. Could it be the CAE or the loaches?

Oh, I just remembered I fed them 2 small crayfish on Sunday, maybe they didn't eat both... but I don't think they could snap that loud, I've heard it, and wouldn't be able to hear it from across the room.

Thumbs up I think I know the cause

I just read that khuli loaches, like some catfish, have the tissue connection from the swim bladder to the ear that allows them to make noises. If that's what it was.. wow! That's a loud noise for a 2.5 in fish! I've heard small catfish do that when I was in the amazon, but these loaches are smaller... I want them to do it more often!

Yes, I think all loaches do it. My yoyo loach used to do that, even when it was only a couple of inches long. It could be heard from across the room.
