Rubbing against rocks
Anyone know why cichlids will sometimes rub up against the rocks? Like they are trying to scratch their backs. Looks wierd!
they may just have an itch-just keep watching them incase
Mine do the same thing occasionally. I'm new to cichlids, but I really enjoy their quarks. Maybe just because I have 5 mischievous boys and they remind me of them. ;)
It can a sign that they are ready to spawn and displaying.
Monitor as well in case of ich.
mine were doing that i thought it was spawning so i ignored it. turns out it was ich and my stupidity cost me a convict and a nice jack dempsey :(
