Wink Did you hear your fish bark?

Dogs bark, Cats meow, Wolves haul, what does your fish do when the fish wants to express herself or himself with a voice?
Answer: They grunt and my blueface angel grunts like a barking dog. Surprise?!
When chased by Cosmo, her bully trigger tankmate, she protested with a angry barking sound.
A few other fishes do grunt but not as regularly as blueface. Clown trigger, domino damsel and emperor angel are examples.
Anybody can give me more names of barking fishes?

Thanks!!!

Herring apparently communicate by passing gas.

Re: Did you hear your fish bark?

My fish communicate by opening their mouths super wide. No noise comes from this though aside from water splashes.

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

Re: Did you hear your fish bark?

My fish like to splash the water a lot just before I feed them.

Help those in our hobby to exceed beyond their expectations.
