Moochers

One of the funniest things in my tank is when my clowns are eating their zucchini wheels. They are clicking away and chomping down and lo and behold here comes my baby Jag cichlid (7-8"). He stays right by a piece of zucchini and watches every move the clowns make. The second a small particle of zucchini floats away he is on it.

He doesn't bother the loaches, just eagle-eyes them til he can mooch a snack at their expense. Anyone else seen their cichlids waiting for handouts from the loaches? It's a riot!
