    I recently heard my clowns clicking. And all I did was add zucchini to their tank. Awwww! Anyone else have the pleasure of hearing their fish "purring"?

    Yes isn't it the coolest thing to see and hear? My Clowns just about drown me at feeding time because they try to out compete each other for the hand feeding. :D

    Dont they click when they eat, like their jaws when they come together make a clicking sound. When I had my pictus catfish he used to make a big honking sound if another fish nipped him. It was so loud

    Honking? Must've been a trip to hear that!

    Not really sure how they do it but clowns will click sometimes even when their not eating.
