One of my female black skirt tetras has been acting kind of weird lately. Yesterday she was hiding behind the plant, and now she's in a plant (the same one). FYI, the plant is a very realistic looking but nonetheless fake plant.
I only have 3 of them, because I'm finishing up my cycle. So, my question is: Is she doing this because she's stressed (She hasn't turned black in the 2 weeks I've had her) or because she's about to lay eggs? She's not that swollen or anything... actually, it seems to have gone down in the past 2-3 days (no eggs though...).
P.S. She's also not eating much. I DID get her 2 weeks after my other fish, could it be she's just still adjusting to the other fish, new tank, et al?
