My barbs have had an entire day in the tank now, they seem to be settled as they occasionally chase each other around the tank.
I thought it interesting that they seem to congregate around the two sword plants more than anywhere else in particular. I would have expected around the taller stems or even behind the vertical driftwood as the swords are not very big yet. They really have to squeeze in to get all twelve in there.
Does anyone else seem to have favorite hangouts for their various fishes, particularly one that surprised you?
