Is it normal for this yellow to swim up and then back down and over and over again?Jayd976 said:Blue hippos require at least a 180 gallon tank and require expert care and are very susceptible to many diseases more so than other fish. Do some research you don't want a hippo tang.
Nitrite: 0BeanFish said:It is called glass surfing and it is usually associated with stress.
If I do not remember wrongly you had a rough start with some Ocellaris in an uncycled tank. How did it all went now? Did you cycle the tank?
I would suggest you to check the water parameters to discard stress from them. If your water parameters are fine then I would just let him be, maybe he is just acting like that because he is getting to know his new home. If the odd behavior continues then you should start looking for signs of disease or anything that may be causing stress.
And I would not suggest you to get blue tangs, they are beautiful fish but they are super delicate and need an enormous tank size.
Yeah, I got her today. I acclimated her alsoBeanFish said:Your water parameters look pristine, they are beautiful to look at lol.
Mmm, give him some time, you added him recently right? He may just be acclimating (I guess you drip acclimated him right? Even then it may take some more time to fully feel at home ). If the odd behaviour continues then come back to us.
