| || | True SAE darts up towards the top of tank
I've read that true SAE's are bottom dwellers, but appears mine darts up to top of tank, have more or less finished cycling, and have had its weekly PWC (partial water change) all paremeters (Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrate) look great at 0 (finally) I have got 2 - local LFS said 1 was fine on its own.. grrr the 2nd LFS said they had no flying foxes, but had algae eaters (CAE's - errr I'll pass thanks), whilst trying to determine what may be the cause, I discovered the tank should be heavy planted (I'm hoping sooner rather than later), I also read they are jumpers, (a bit confused on that one - although a lot of fish are jumpers, If they are bottom dwellers, (who what when why where would they be jumpers?) why would they be swimming towards the top? I have also read they middle swimmers also, although 9/10 times I have read do stipulate they are bottom dwellers... am running an Eheim Pro 3e filtration system, any ideas at all?
Anyone? Someone? Everyone? Noone?
