Hey, you guys have got to try this. I put a golf ball in my tank a couple days ago and my P's went nuts. The dominant one would not stop trying to attack it. I had to put in another one because my other P wanted one too. Now they each have one that they've put in their territory. It almost reminds me of one time when I was young and went to the zoo here in town. There were these buffaloe there that had these huge metal balls that they pushed around all day. It looks exactly the same only the P's try to bite them. Try it out, I've had hours of amusement since I did it.

No they're not stressed at all. It's just all fun and games for them. I find it to be very humerous watching them nudge the balls around with their heads. Give it try and you'll see what I mean. Just remember that my P's aren't babies anymore... a small fish wouldn't even bother with them.

thats to funny! that must look preety cool, just make sure that they don't ram it to hard into the glass i heard a simular story on a cichlid site and someone replied not to use a golf ball but to use a ping pong ball you lower the water 4-5'' and drop in a ping pong ball and they keep popping it up to the canope hehehe

i have a snail shell in my tank, it's about 2"s long, and a bright color. I notice that my p's quite often try to nudge it... I always figured that they thought it was a live snail, and were trying to flip it over for a tasty meal

maybe they think the golf ball is a snail as well?

do p's eat snails in the wild?
