Weird behavior or normal?
So our tank recently got Ich and all our fishes died so weíre looking into branching out from gold fish and trying a cichlid. Our friend has a tank with 3 parrot cichlids and they always look like theyíre dead like They rest on plants and donít move.
The people who got the fish said they were told the fish store Medicates the fish so they act normal in the store so people buy them and that this not moving is their normal behavior. They said they sometimes see them swimming around but only when the fish canít tell their looking and that as soon as the fish sees them they stop moving.
Is this normal behavior? Do cichlids not move around much? Do the pet stores medicate them to act normal? I donít want to get a fish and it never move
