    Weird Reaction To Stress

    When I clean the tank the fish get a bit stressed and some of them will become a pail color, but quickly get their color back when the stress factor is removed. Stress causes the color change, but why do you think that is?

    What Instinctual Behaviors Have You Observed?

    My GouramI will take little pieces of plants and make itself a canopy. It will also breathe in atmospheric oxygen and blow tiny bubbles to keep it together. It has never seen someone else build one yet it knows how to do it. It's purely instinctional. The most fascinating part of this instinct...
