What On Earth Is My Blackmoor Doing?

    For the past two days, my precious Blackmoor has been spending most of her time laying in the plants. I thought she was getting stuck so I moved them around for her, but now I realise she is purposely lying in them, curled up almost like a cat!
    It's hard to really tell from these pics but it's the best I could do.
    She doesn't seem too interested in food either.
    I have the API testing kit, and tested before and after my water change last night and it was fine.

    Any ideas?

    Wait.. are there 2 of them? That never happened to my blackmoors though.

    I would treat it as a red flag - what do you mean by "it was fine" (exact numbers)? What size tank is the fish in? Hope she's okay

    Can we have some more information-
    -How large is the tank?
    -What are the water parameters?
    -How long has it been set up, and is it cycled?
    -Do you have any lights on? If so how long are they on for?
    -What are the tank mates?

    Anything unusual is worth looking into. We do need more information to rule out any possible issues within your tank that could be causing this behaviour.
