corys gone wild

Hi everyone....Yesterday I planted my big tank... added eco to the bottom...it was a long laborous process....I put in the tank divider, so I could do one side away from the fish at a time......now that its done all three of my normally sedate Corys have gone wild... raceing back and forth and up and down on the ends..... they plowed head on into glass cats......are they super happy or annoyed?..I'm afraid poor Ruben will have a heart attack....

LOL I don't know, it seems each time I make a large change to their environment my fish behave that way as well. I suspect they are happy that the stressor is gone and they can get back to life as they know it. I have not gotten my Cory's yet so I don't know what is normal for them or not but my tigers behave like that and so did my Platy's and Guppies with change.

They're probably just a little freaked out with the change. Give them some time to settle down and they should be fine.

They are fun to watch aren't they?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

yeah they just need a little down time..but it could also be an excited response to the water...i get my bronzes to breed by doing a large 30-40% water change with slightly cooler water to simulate rain and or flooding ...this usualy gets them all riled up ...more active going up and down then forming a T with the females upon depositing of eggs...its a posibility..well cool beans that you got some awesome substrate and good luck with the green thumb.....ADIOS....

That must be something to see. How cool is that?
