I bought some head n tail light tetras and they seem to be healthy but...sometimes they just sit in the water still then start flicking all their fins out in the water. Is something wrong with them or are they just working on their fin 'muscles' ? They are rather young fish.
I bought the fish yesterday and acclimated them by floating for 20 minutes then adding a cup every 6-7 minutes - 4 times.. then net them out and put into QT
has their aquariums at 73-75 and I run mine around 78-80.
I just took some water out of my 30 gal
, seeded filter media and some ornaments out of a cycled tank.
These fish seem very terrified if anything is near the aquarium. When the light is off they seem more at ease also... are these fish traditionally low-light? like shadows? My wattage is between 1-2 wpg
and I have an ornament they can hide in from the light. Yet they don't hide in it much.. 1-2 might hide in it but that is about it.
