My shark is a digger. Everytime I look into the tank I see a deep hole in the sand. I fill it in and it comes back bigger. :lol: He was also found a new place to float upside down; under the filter. :roll:

I am glad my shark is not the only one that floats upside down, i think he is dead somedays. Though mine doesnt seem to dig.

Mine swims backwards also but only for short distances, like to back out of a cave or something. He is either in the slate cave upside down, or under the filter upside down. :lol:

Tigger the clown loach (soon going on a long holiday to Chaoz's house) swims to the top of the tank and drifts down on his back without moving...he also sleeps on his side or back and plays dead after meals...
When he sees me at the desk and wants food he practically climbs out of the tank...he's nosing about in the corner nearest to me at the minute waiting for attention.

My shark sleeps on an angle in the corner of his cave. Your loach sounds a lot like my guppy's. Whenever I enter the room they are always in the corner closest to me. They think that when they see me they will be getting fed, doesn't happen most of the time, just in the morning and at night. If, for some reason, I have to put my hand into the tank, every single one nibbles my arm, fingers, and hand thinking its food. It's led me to scrub my hands with warm water before making contact with the tank wate.

Yes I get up to my elbows and above in my tank when I'm cleaning and pruning and checking on things - I always make sure I've not got any dog slobber or horse hoof/mane and tail products still hanging about...just in case!

I have 3 clown loaches but one of them specifically is absolutely bonkers. It has to squeeze itself under the smallest of spaced in the tank and it has to wriggle its way in there and out the other side or reverses out again. One day it is going to get stuck i think, we also have a lighthouse in the tank and the three of them sleep vertically with their noses downwards in there. No wonder they are called clown loaches.
