The top fish in the tank turned out to be totally afraid of Tape Measures. I wanted to get an idea of how big the smaller fish were getting and the second it came out he bolted to the back of the tank. This is the first time I've seen him afraid of anything and it cracked me up. He also displayed some color change which I thought it would be nice to show off for those that might not know what it looks like. Dotty is a light blue color but the second he saw that tape measure his color darkened. It's really cool how Cichlids change colors depending on their mood.
I hope it's okay if I share the video.
