Guppy laying on top of heater!

Magtom

Hi!
I have 2 female guppies that I found as fry right after their mother died. I had had her in my 10 gallon tank for about 3 months. They have been in a community since with 2 albino corys, 5 glowlight tetras, a nerite snail and lots of plants. Yesterday I put the 5 tetras in a newly cycled 40 gallon tank (in which they’ve been spawning in all day!). I noticed a very small glowlight tetra (maybe 2 weeks old) in the 10 gallon tank as well today.

I just noticed one of the guppies goes and lays on the top of the submerged heater for 30 seconds or so and then swims away. The water temp has been around 70° and I’m wondering if she is cold? Or why she is displaying this behavior? Does anyone know? Thank you!

That's interesting. My betta's "bed" is behind my heater, but it's strange that the guppy doesn't stay there.

If I remember, don’t betta’s typically lay on things in the tank? I’m not sure it’s typical behavior for guppies. I hope someone knows. I’m afraid she may be unhappy.
