I know we had a thread about this before, but I tried looking through the search engine and cant find it.

I remember that from the last thread, pertaining to fish yawning, that It was nothing and just a daily thing that they do. Plus someone mentioned the fact that it also involes in water perimeters being unbalanced or unstable. I never took it no mind, but now I've seen my fish do this alot more frequently and becoming concerned. What does it exactly mean and/or is there anyting to worry about??

I don't think you have to worry about it: my reds do it from time to time, and I have even seen other fish (small tetra's, among others) do it.

If my memory serves me right, they do it to clear their gills: rushing water over them to remove dirt, parasites(?) etc.
