    Hi,

    I bought my african cichlids a nice new ornament for them to hide in but once I put it in they are all staying in the far corner away from it! :;fishy10

    Is this normal/how long will it take for them to get used to it?

    That's rather odd. What is the ornament?

    It could just be placement? I had a fish completely ignore an ornament for weeks and then I switched up the location of the ornament in the tank and then within a few minutes found him happily snoozing on it. Fish are so strange sometimes lol.

    Fish are very strange sometimes. They are so adorable 85% of the time tho

    Update: It's been 24 hours and now they seem to have gotten over their ornament phobia! Guess it's just one of those strange fish quirks
