That lab looks a bit stressed. They are a social fish who do best in groups of 4 or more IMO.

I have two in there, maybe it was because I just switched the light off?

He just ate a pellet in the video so I don't think so, didn't try and move away from me.

I say that based on his movements and the way he was sticking near cover, I think he was just not liking how the synos were darting around him at that moment.

Well I probably shouldn't have more since it was suggested I don't, is a 6 count of fronts and 6 yellow labs ok to have?

I'm not sure calmer is the word but its just all in the movements. See how he looked twitchy and sort of unsure, once comfortable they will cruise mid water and are very inquisitive about the tank. Its likely nothing to be worried about, they are still relatively new additions, that said watch for any signs of the synos stressing other fish out, they were darting like mad.

They are actually Botia lohachata. I don't think they are a good mix with the stock but I'm not positive on that.
