Mine seem to know me and my mom. They always beg when we come in and don’t usually beg for people if they haven’t given them food. However, they don’t seem to understand what glass is since they back away when I put my hand on the glass, something my pleco and loaches don’t do

All fish are very smart.
They get to know your fish, and feeding time.

My platys come to the front when I enter, but if I tap the glass gently, or if I drop something on the dresser..
They will dart to the back, (this is normal haha) they got a little frightened!

My platys still are a little new.

ALL of my fish know that when a "big face" comes to the glass, its likely feeding time! They, like all animals, learn quickly! They know the hand the feeds.

I know for a fact that platys seem to poop a lot.

One of my baby platys will actually swim up to my face when I’m checking the tempurature and pretend to eat with her mouth

I believe all animals know who gives them food- and whoever that is.. that is their favorite. lol
It's the food they want.. not you hahaha
