    I purchased 8 Rosy Red Minnows today and put them in a 20 gallon high tank. They all look great and are very active, and I mean active! I am wondering if they will ever calm down.
    Anyone have any experience with these fish?
    Thanks.

    Mine are ALWAYS very active! Whole tank seems healthy! I love to watch that tank. I have 3 other types of similar size with them. The tank is always active! They have places to hide but all seem happy together. Oh, no...now I have that song in my head! LOL

    They stay active all the time. The only time they stop moving is when they are scared/hiding, guarding territory, sleep, sick. And even when they sleep, they move alot
