Video of Clyde Feeding


Blue Ring
Aug 19, 2006
I thought that I would post a video of Clyde being fed a silverside. Clyde is back on the rock to the right of the feeding stick. Once you see him, watch carefully as he changes colors and textures in an instant. It's not the lighting, but Clyde doing the changing. Absolutly amazing in my book. Hard to tell if he is in his hunting mode, or his courting mode, but the changes are something else. Clyde not only gets the silverside, but makes off with the feeding stick. I wonder who I can get to reach in to the bottom of the tank and retrieve the stick :confused:
