Can a fish miss it's owner?

Post by Eddie on Fri 26 Aug 2011, 8:32 pm

Ok i just got back from a 12 day vacation and had someone come in and topp off our tanks and feed them. Got back and everything seemed ok except my gsp. It looks in horrible shape like it hasn't eaten since I left. Now the first day back as soon as I got back I fed them and noticed it didn't eat. The next day it started eating like normal. Now my question is, is it possible it wouldn't eat the whole time I was gone because we didn't feed it and a stranger did? (the rest of the fish look great and it's funny because Jason had mentioned picky puffers just before I left)

LOL.. I glad he's eating now. I do know when John (Win) stops by... his old grouper can recognize him... voice,tone.. something?? He perks up noticably when he's here.

I know my fish know me. When anyone else looks at the tank the fish aren't as active. When I just look at the tank the fish perk up and come to the top like they're ready to eat. My grandpa has a catfish pond and the fish can tell the difference in the truck he normally drives there to feed and his other truck.

That's some crazy stuff. I have never experienced it with fish but I had a dart frog that would watch me brush my teeth in the mornings when I would be getting ready to go to work. At first I thought I was crazy. Lol
