LAY DOWN, FIDO!

Just an amusing story; we had guests to dinner and while in the kitchen, I heard whispers coming from the next room, where my friends were raptly watching the goings-on in the aquarium. I glanced over and made a comment that it was nice to see other people enjoying the tank as much as my husband and I did. Pause. Long pause...finally my girlfriend said "I don't know how to tell you this, but two of your fish are dead on the bottom." I calmly walked over to the tank and noticed that two of the modestas were indeed in the "dying cockroach" position- I then told her that we had actually trained the fish to do this (she believed me for a while) and proceeded to throw some food in the water. The modestas miraculously sprang to life and darted away!!! Good Fido!!!
