For some reason or another my altuvei Mickey likes to watch me while I sleep. He'll come over to the side of the tank closest to my bed and watch me as I pass out in exhaustion. I'll wake up during the night and there he is...just staring...stalking me...waiting till the day I fall in his tank and he can have his way at his keeper. I love my Altuvei.

Yeah, they are not that bad of fish. Mine likes to jump out of the water. Sometimes I think he is gonna jump out of the tank. I had to put a rock top of the cover to hold it down. LoL

My guy is only 4 inches right now...I can't wait to watch him grow...which will take a long time but I think he's going to be a very attractive piranha. My gf is going to be getting me a rhom as soon as I get my 180 gallon tank and get it cycled for my reds.

I had a natt that would do that when he was small. Kinda freaky reading in bed and seeing him watch me out of the corner of my eye.

You might be onto something Frank. He might be trying to figure out if my intentions are simply to get him large enough to eat. I wonder if all our piranha's wonder this about us?

When my Red was solo he used to watch me while i was in bed to.I'd wake up in the middle of the night to have a smoke and flick my lighter and there he was just staring at me. Also he would swim around in circles then stop and just stare at me for a couple mins and then do it all over again this was when the light was on. I would wave my hand when i had a smoke in front of the tank while laying down on my bed and he'd come to the front of the glass and try to attack the smoke.I tried getting a vid of this but my friends cam corder broke . Maybe he didn't want me smoking or something.

They don't have to wonder at my table
