    I filmed my SAEs does this for about an hour for some reason. I was curious if its breeding behavior, or what else it could be.

    Thank you

    Welcome to fishlore!
    That's glass surfing. What size tank is this?

    30 gallons. I’m getting a 40 setup soon so I plan to move some out. So glass surfing just means they rub their bellies on the glass? I was really hoping it was mating behavior. :(

    Did you just get them? They probably just need to settle in. Mine also acts like that when it notices me, probably thinking it’s going to be fed.

    Fish usually do it when they're first introduced to a tank, or when they are stressed. It's not mating behavior.

    They were introduced to the tank 3 days ago. I did a pwc yesterday. Stress makes sense. Thanks
