Fish Are All At Bottom 4" Of Tank
So I just moved all my fish from a 10 Gal to a 55 Gal today and for a good 3-4 hrs they swam around all over the tank but now for the last 1/2 hr they are all at the bottom of the tank.
Why could this be???
Congrats on the larger tank!
What fish do you have?
Few guppies few mollies 1 bala shark 1 angel fish 10 neon tetras and 6 fiddler crabs
was it a new tank ect water condtion ect?
And you need to get rid of all crabs and the Bala shark. Crabs are brackish and Shark gets 16" long and needs to be in a group.
It was a friends tank he gave to me. And I will move the Shark if he gets too big. I'm not getting rid of the Crabs.
I am just trying to figure out why they are all just swimming around on the bottom now
Why won't you get rid of the crabs? Do you even have a spot for them to get out of the water? Way to kill the crabs.
As I stated before, is your tank cycled?
Not sure, maybe they are still just adjusting to their new environment.
Do you have plants and decore to make them feel more comfortable?
Be sure to test the water with the added fish and to make sure the cycle was not disturbed by the move.
Because I want Crabs in my tank. This is where they get air www.crabhomes.com
And I have no idea what cycles means. I think I figured out why they are at the bottom the water was a lil warm compaired to what they were used to.
Oh how I love when people come to an advice forum and not take people's advice. Yay for first impressions.
Warm water would have the fish swimming more. Cold water means lethargic fish.
You really need to do some research. Cycled means your tank has gone through a nitrogen cycled. This means ammonia spike then drop, nitrite spike then drop, and nitrate spike and stay around 20ppm. You need to get a liquid test kit to find out your parameters.
