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.

sometimes i rearanged a couple things and it gave my hatchets both heart attacks and they swam in a circle and died

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. :evil:

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.
