Treadmill for fish
 
My Otopharynx lithobates fry have been doing some workout lately kind of interesting. In the last half of the video I was trying to show my fish huddled up in the back top right corner. Sometimes theres like 15 of them all pushing against each other.. I dont get it. Not gasping for air or anything... like they see food at the top or something.

My rustys and acei occasionally decide they need a work out and go swim right in front of my maxijet 1200. When they get "tired", they dont bother swimming and get blown across the tank to the other maxijet 1200 which they then swim against. Repeat this a few times, or just keep getting blown across the tank.

I will try and get a video of it as they love doing it.

Sigh.. more problems lol... Woke up this morning and the female peacock we had in there to recover from a nasty fin nipping was covered in ick. Looking closer several of the fry had it as well, and the rubberlip pleco :x I feel like I'm dancing... left and right then fall on my butt. Temperature up, going to try Kick Ich by Ruby reef and see how that works.

Well... go figure. Within hours of putting the "medicine" in fish started dropping. Peacock was first followed so far by about 9 fry. Thing is many of them showed signs of poisoning... that wasn't there before the medicine. Did a 50% water change.. see what happens. Really dont want the pleco to die.
