    I got a panda garra today and added him to my nano tank (temporarily, I'll be moving him to a bigger tank). ALL day he has been swimming in frantic vertical circles against the glass. Is he....okay? It's been a little disturbing to watch hours of this.

    Panda Garras are very active. Since he's in a nano tank this behavior just shows that the tank is too small for him.

    Okay, I will move him to a bigger tank. Phew. Thanks for the help!

    They also love friends. More pandas will help calm the lone one down. Three or more (I like 6) should be good, if you have the space.
