Bottom feeders acting strange.
I had a question regarding the bottom feeders in my 20 gallon long. I have 2 cory catfish snd 2 yoyo loaches. I have noticed that they like to swim around the tank and up and down the glass like they want to be everywhere at once. This behavior doent surprise me so much with the cories, but the loaches, because in the past they have always hid in the cave all day. I just noticed he has been on the computer side of the tank watching me type about him. Also when i woke up this morning i saw they were on the bed side of the tank watching me. Overall they seem happy. They are eating and doing evrything a normal loach would do, just swimming around in the light alot more. Theyre not swimming violently or anything, just taking a cruise around stopping here and there to check out a plant or fish along the way. I dont dislike this behavior or anything but seeing how much of a change this is from their prevoius behavior i want to know if i need to do something like lower the nitrates, or if my fish are just happy.
Side notes: They were moved from a 29 gallon with pretty nasty water and not alot of hiding spots into a clean 20 gallon with 2 caves, a shelf and plants galore to hide in.
