Sound production in Botia dario.

This "click" thing's got my mind asking all sorts of questions, so today I decided to observe my darios more closely when feeding Algae-wafers. The clicks were there and at times one fish or another would "whip" against another to defend a flake, but at that time I didn't hear a click. The clicks were mainly there as the fish bit at the still hard flakes.
I speculated the possibility of a kind of directional sound generation that might be used to "stun" prey somewhere down the forum. Today I witnessed something which I had not seen before, because I've not looked with such detail.
