Hi, i have a sengal bichir 10 cm tha ive rescued 5 weeks ago. He was in a quarantin smaal box for 4 weeks and then i meved him to the current tank 300L. He was very active most of the time even when he was in the box. But after i moved him to the tank his acting like a panagaisus. He swim all the time , all over the place, up down left right agianst currnt, under things between things.. its seems like he never rest. Do you think it might be because of some problem? He has good appetite and healthy poo and there isnt anything else wrong that i see. Water p are 0,0,10 and theres good filteration and oxiganisation ,temp is 27.in the tank are 3 peacocks 1 mbuna all 10 cm and a pleco around 15 cm. No one picks on him and he dosnet pick on anyone else.theres a camera on the tank so isee them also in night and when nobody is home and nobody has interacted with him.

That looks like glass surfing to me. Thats usually a sign of stress so he might just be adjusting to the new tank. I would give him a few days and see if he calms down. Another more experienced member could probably give some more advanced advice. Good luck

Yeah. Does look like glass surfing. Pretty common for a lot of fish especially when in a new tank. It should just kind of go away, but if it doesn't, try plants near the glass.
