    I remodeled my tank about 2 weeks ago and I hadn’t seen my amano shrimp since. Today I was happy to see them but they were acting really weird. They’re walking and swimming all over the tank very quickly and they just keep going around and around. Normally they hang out in the caves and tubes, but they’re acting crazy now. It’s just unusual. There’s 4 platys and 7 white fin rosy tetras who haven’t picked on any of the shrimp before. 0 ammonia/0 nitrite/ about 10 nitrate

    Nothing to worry they are still probably figuring out a territory.

    My RCS usually do that after I do a water change. I think they are just exploring around to see if anything is new or changed

    Agree with the above. My amanos go nuts after the slightest change or disturbance. Probably a natural reaction to being low on the food chain. They also do this when I feed...they take the little sinking wafers intended for my cories and kuhlis...
