"Y" the mighty almorhae guard loach

I thought i had seen it all until I crept up on one of my lovely yoyos. Well i peered thru the heavily planted side of my tank only to be greeted by a very aggressive "Y". Well that's her name we also have Y-not?, Y-bother and No...Y?( our little rostrata).

Any ways , I was taken aback when Y proceeded to lunge at me and do the mouth projection thing. Here's the kicker...she actually gave me the spine sign and proceded to lunge and spit and spine. Geez! i had disturbed her in her little rock cave and i was not quite sure if it was me she was lunging at until i left and came back...needless to say she went at it again!!!

im going to peer in at her and see if she is still doing it. She obviously sees me as a threat to her home and a big one at that. She tried to kill me thru the glass for goodness sakes!

Just thought i would share and im wondering if anyone has noticed this one?!
