African Chiclids Question Please!

I have a 55 gallon with 5 African Chiclids in it.
Why are they moving my rocks to one side of the tank?
I put them back level, and the next morning they have done it again!
They take rocks from the middle and push them to the side!

Many cichlids do this. Some may do it in peparation for spawning,, and others,, I think just cause they can.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

welcome to the world of cichlids. dont bother decorating your tank with cichlids, theyre just going to re-decorate as they see fit. nothing to be worried about, its just what they do.

cichlids are famous for moving and uprooting,
beware that rocks can be moved to such an extent that they can damage a tank. !

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
