Non stop for a half hour now. I just finished taking out some plants and doing some minor re-scaping an hour ago. Weird thing is, my single pregnant amano is sitting still, its been preg for a month now, never seen this type of behaviour in them. Whats goin on?

I made a vid and posted on youtube, heres the link:

Maybe you putting your hand in the tank freaked it out.

The chaos seems to revovle around the pregnant amano. I've had my hand in for longer periods of time with no problems. An hour later and there still goin like energizer bunnies.

Great video thumbs2: and nice tank :malelovies:

My Amano's sometimes go crazy after I changed the water but also the males will go into a frenzy when the female releases hormornes that she is fertile.

Maybe during the re-scaping you stirred up some substrate and they're going nuts over all the food? Happens to my amanos when I do that, the crawl all over the tank checking out the freshly stirred substrate.
