What do you mean by going crazy? When did you add them to the tank? They could just be really really excited to see you

check your tank parameters ..

mine do things like that if my levels are off

I would suggest doing a large water change

what size tank? what is your entire stock

if you check you parameters I could suggest a more accurate amount.. without a reading I would suggest around 50% .. only because it seems like their current behavior isn't their average behavior


also the water change would make them happy regardless

what is your pwc schedule? amount and frequency
