Here's a video of a couple naked gobies (Gobiosoma bosc) engaging in a territorial dispute over an oyster shell.  They appear to be doing push ups to make themselves appear larger to each other before one finally chases the other away.  Pretty comical fish.

I tried to embed this video but it didn't work.  Not sure why...

Man, I lost five bucks on the hand-standing dude!

That is pretty funny stuff. Give it a voice-over from Michael W. and it's comedy cold. Well, for us fish nerds, anyway.

The funny thing is that those are pelvic fins... so it almost like they are just fighting with their feet.

I'm gonna take this right fin, and I'm gonna whop you on that side of your face...
