Does the re-arranging of scenery stress fish?

Always wondered this, since occasionally I move the scenery around. I don't want to stress my fish since it forces them to re-establish new territories and whatnot. I'll stop immediately if it does.

I re-arrange about every month or so.

Tanks: 40 gal FW setup, 10 gal Reef tank.

No it didn't lol.

I just think it would be like God's hand coming down and essentially plopping oneself into a new habitat. It'd piss me off tons.

I've heard that with cichlids when the territory struggles get out of control, this is one way to try and reestablish positioning.

its always a good idea to rearange the settign when adding new fish. this way the fish have to restart the peking order again giving the newcomer a chance to claim territory.
