HI all,

Just a question out of curiosity rather than urgency here

I've recently noticed that some of my RCS have been doing this weird action. They stand, with their tail curled under slightly, and rub there back set of legs on their back, almost like they're scratching it. I saw one shrimp do it and didn't think much of it, now I've just seen another one do it so now I can't help but wonder what it is they're doing.

Has anyone seen anything similar?

That makes sense I thought at first it could be to do with moulting, but then they stopped and carried on looking for food on my elodea, so I figured it must be something else.

I'm also glad to hear it's normal!
