Ridiculous experiment #26 *PIC*

Well, it had to happen. I strung the mock-loach from a thread and hung it outside my Botia tank this evening. It hangs in the spot where the cucumber normally goes, but with good sight lines for the various hiding spots where the loaches like to hang out...
Strangely, the clowns have not emerged at all, not even with the cucumber in place. The darios and striatas have been quite agitated - doing very zippy fly-by's of the area, but clearly disturbed by the false clown.
Shortly I'll turn off the lights after the evening meal goes in the tank. I'm quite interested to see if the clowns come out for a look at all.

Who's got time on his hand
