As territorial predators they really do stare a lot, watching every movement for (I assume) signs that it somehow involves brine shrimp or intruders. Because Bela's tank is on my desk he mostly stares at me as I type. I like this behavior and hope it entertains him but apparently some people find it rather alarming.
For my last night in California my sister's family and I had Thai food. No fish, though.
