Hi all. Spot is acting odd, and I'm a little stumped as to why.
He's been swimming laps around and around the tank, as fast as he can go. He's not rubbing himself on anything, nor is he smashing into stuff (well, he DID try to fit behind the filter hose and realized he's gotten too fat
). He's not clamped, and he's eating well, save that he does his laps when the others "gravel" for crumbs. We didn't test ammonia, but they got a recent water change, and nitrates, nitrites, pH, etc., are all within the safe-ideal range on our test. He has no marks or odd spots on him, nor is he clamped, nor are the others acting strange. They just kind of watch him go by, then go back to their business.
So, what is it, I wonder? Is he:
- Getting geared up for spawning season?
- Training for the Iron Fish competition?
- Or just being a silly fishie?
Guesses, questions, and input welcome. Quite frankly, I'm puzzled.
