my spilo is in a 60 gallon planted tank, and he is pacing back and forth all day and night. this isnt normal behavior for him, whats up with him? hes eating his foods, but the pacing isworrying me. hes probally gonna get a bump on his chin from this.
he used to swim around in different locations, but not back and forth back and forth (left to right of tank)
he is bumping his chin along the walls of the tank. he doesnt look comfortable or something. he was never a spilo that sat around. always on the move, but now he sorta looks like he wants out.
Well, my red did started to do this after he killed off most of his redbelly buddies, and still continued to do it after he finished off his last "friend", so maybe it indeed has something to do with it... I don't know for sure, though.
You might ask Frank (hastatus): maybe he knows the answer.
Hey tt I have been keeping P's for nearly thirty years, and to quote Forrest Gump " Piranha are like a box of chocolates , you never know what you're gonna get". PIRANHA ARE FUNNY THAT WAY, YA THEY ARE!! I have a S. medinai that tries to screw itself into the ceiling every time i walk in the room.If i was out of the room it would go back to his cave and chill. Had a S.rhombeus for ten years, spent more time on the carpet than his tank, nicknamed Hoover. He has since joined the great dust bunnies in the sky! And now resides in the living room on a shelf. Due to their occasional phsycotic nature, mother nature made them incredable healers. If it's envirement is fine,the rest of the problems are for the fish to figure out! Hey i luv my p's, but if one gets suicidel so be it,form a new bond with the next. Radar
