Swimming In Circles


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I am thoroughly enjoying my new addition, Ace (red and white Ryukin). He is between two and three inches at present and hanging out in his very own 20 gal tank.

I have noticed that, tonight, he is swimming around in an oval shape against the front wall of his tank. I have seen Goldfish do this in pairs or trios but never alone. Is this a normal behavior in a lone Goldfish? To be more detailed in my description of the behavior, it looks as if he is trying to trace a circle or oval shape in onto the tank's front surface.

Is anyone familiar with this behavior?

I also want to mention that he really enjoyed his frozen krill dinner tonight. I don't think I will feed it as a staple, but I know that it is full of nutrients and, apparently, tastes great! :D
