Have any of you pointed a laser pointer to the back of your tank and watch all of your fish go crazy to try to eat it? Is it actually harmful as long as you don't get it in their eyes? It is very funny to watch.
I don't think they would do that. But they go crazy when they see it.I don't know what piranhas will do!!! they seem to bite everything !!! i'm afraid they will break the glass if they see a laser light.
It might have the same effect on their eyes as on ours. Ruby and Emerald seem to go crazy when I shine it at the back of the 2.5.I don't know, I break glass when I see laser light. :;a i've seen the laser pointers for sale as dog & cat toys but not tried it on our bettas. I do wonder if the laser wavelength would be harmless to their eyes or not.
Really, upside down? I don't believe you. The only way is to tell the :;z and they will tell me. lollol!!! Oscar loves them sO much he swam UPSIDE DOWN to attack the light!!! It was so cute!! Miley
Do that every couole of minutes and they don't need any exercise from a big tank. lolyea, we did.. some of them chased it at first, but they seem to have realized now that it's nothing they can eat and they ignore it.
But my fish think it is food at first and then I feed them right after, so they are starting to accompany the light with food. It is kind of like Pavlove(spelling) and his work with dogs. But since it is your opinion, I am not about to tell you it is wrong(one thing I really hate).Sorry guys/ Tom.. teasing animals, 'specially my fish, is tantamount to what my management do to me on a daily basis.. my conscience won't allow me to do it.. crank calls to people/ my management who deserve it , maybe.. not laser pointers with my fish.. sorry.
What a great idea! I'll have to try that. My female betta goes mental when I put my finger in her tank. She'll chase me round and round like a cat would.
I've seen videos that go against what you are saying. There are cats that would try and get your fish and then fall in the tank.
Fun to watch for sure but be careful, the laser AND the reflective beams can burn their eyes just like it can yours.
I would love yo know if it's rest true or not, maybe Jamie and Adam can help us out!
While it is unlikely most lasers used in toys, games, and laser pointers can permanently damage your eyes, it is theoretically possible so caution should be exercised. However, split second exposure from type II or IIIA laser pointers will not result in any permanent damage.
Didn't they do an episode on that already? I can't remember but I seem to recall it was BUSTED... By the way, Jamie and Adam are from my area
