You know a fish loves you when it would rather play than eat. That’s exactly the case with this adorable one, flaring out his gills and dance while even allowing his owner and friend to hold him in the water.
There’s absolutely no doubt that this fish loves his caretaker. They’re not just interacting randomly – that’s love right there. Watch as Bon Shaw pets, plays, and caresses his Blood Parrot Cichlid who just can’t get enough of the affection.
The incredible thing is that despite Bon Shaw bonding with all his fish as far as possible, the second Blood Parrot Cichlid that he takes care of doesn’t like to be touched, but also shows affection. He compares the two to owning a dog and a cat.
If you’ve never seen a fish that’s grown to bond with a human, then this will change the way that you see things completely. In a clip that seems to defy logic, that fish truly is playing and soaking up the love.
