    So I bought 10 neon tetras and a feeder guppy/endler, I have all of them in a quarantine tank and I've noticed that the Feeder guppy/endler glass surfs a lot. What does that mean? (He has been in qt for 14 days now by the way)

    It could be boredom or stress. What are the parameters? Do you have plants or anything in the tank?

    Or maybe its just excited to see you!

    Ammonia: .25-.5 (I do everyday water changes and add Prime everyday to make ammonia harmless)
    Nitrite: 0
    Nitrate: 5-10

    I don't have any plants other than a fake small tree that is floating...

    It could be bored and stressed from being bored. What size is the qt tank? How much longer will they be in qt? What size tank will they be going to?

    Qt tank is 29 gallons but only half is filled so 15 gallons. They will be in qt for about another week. And they will go to a full 29 gallon tank.

    Maybe put a few plants in there? Or some new decor or rocks. lol sometimes I put books with bright color/contrast pictures next to my bettas tanks to give them something to look at. My daughter once drew a picture for one of the bettas and we taped it to the tank
