We are cleaning a fish tank, and was sorting stones from gravel. He left me twice to pick up the 20l bucket filled with gravel, to carry it over and lift to empty into a more than waist high tank. And he sits there with a smug smile on his face.. Am I wrong to feel a little disappointed?

First, what is his relation to you? If he is your boyfriend or husband, then it would be fair to expect him to help. Here is my take on this situation:
If my girlfriend is expecting me to do her hard physical labor, then we are getting into gender roles. I don't mind that at all. That being said, I would expect her to be appreciative and thank me sincerely for my help. I do all of the work and she prepares the post project refreshments. Preferably a sandwich and a cold beer. That's how it would go down in my relationships.
