A Few Issues


Recommended Posts

Hey there everyone,

I'm having a few problems with my fish at the moment. I currently have four fish in an 80g tank. they are all under 4".

For a couple days now I've been noticing my lionhead keeps returning to the same spot of the tank, his head down, and resting between a plant and a rock. If I come over to the tank, he immediately comes and swims up to the front.. however I don't know if this is normal behaviour, since he does not move when he is sitting in his spot. other than that he is acting normal, eating well.. etc.

The next thing is that he and my largest fish, have been being slightly aggressive lately. They circle each other, tail-to-face. then they sort of bump into each other, quite hard actually. I don't know what I should do really.. I don't want to see either of them hurt. the oranda has always been aggressive, and my lionhead is extremely calm when the oranda is not in the tank. I am thinking i might take the oranda back to the pet store. ( They have assured me they do not kill returned fish, and offered to let me watch them re-introduce him to their tank)

Anyways, any help would be much appreciated!
