Firemen should bring them along in buckets, sit back and relax.

So hitting an object (insect) at pinpoint accuracy underwater to above water requires some kind of knowledge of how the gravity affects water... yet these archer fish are experts in the area... I wonder if they learn this during their life time or are just programed/born that way :O

It also doesn't help your species when you are glowing a bright green at night... don't get me wrong it would scare the hell out of me in the woods....just not other predators like the Archer fish!

The last time I threw a spit-ball, it landed back in my face. I could learn a thing or two from these fish.
