    ARE MY FISH YAWNING, OR is this something else?

    My fish open their mouths and spread their gills ...slowly...And it makes me yawn as if Im seeing a person yawn. Do fish yawn, or is this a gill cleaning of some sort? They open their mouths as wide as they can get it open I think. Its not during feeding

    It's kind of like stretching for a fish.

    They do that for two reasons, one is to prime their mouths to eat by stretching it. You'll see that right before they eat. Also, and this will sound gross, they do it to keep food down. Have you ever began to throw up. you gag once or twice and then the flood gates open. A fish will shove all the food it can into it's stomach and sometines that is to much. So this kind of gagging happens to allow them to stretch their insides and keep the food down to stopp the flood.
    Avoidin' all the thick teasers, skeezers, and wierdos
