  1. Default All my fish are hanging out in one corner after adding them

    So I just added my stock of 3 rams, 1 BN pleco, and 12 neon tetra today.

    All of them are just hanging in one corner.


    I'm running a AC 70 and an Eheim 2215. I will get rid of the AC once I know bacteria has grown in the eheim since I added it later in the cycle. Could my current be too strong?

    It's stress from moving, I just leave the lights off and don't bother feeding for a day or two to let them settle in a bit. How much cover is there in the tank?

    You could throw the bag of biomedia from the AC into the EHEIM [If you have room], This will move the vast majority of the AC BB to the canister.

    Naturally, I would keep a close eye on all your parameters for a week or so to make sure it is keeping up. Your readings will tell you if you need to up your wc schedule IE: If it needs to catch up a bit.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    3 rams in a 29 gallon? Are there lots of hiding spots? I would think that wouldn't be enough room for them to claim their space.

    I've read a lot about what people experiences were with that. From what I gathered, 3 with 2 females one male is fine. My tank is planted, I have driftwood and rocks so it should be fine.

    850R, thanks for the response. I just want to make sure nothing is wrong. They seem to be a bit more spread out now, but most of them are keeping to one side. A few have ventured out to other areas of the tank

    just give them a few days if they are still doing it in a week then I will be worried. Make sure you continue to monitor you water. You don't want to loose those beautiful rams

    Thanks guys, I took what you guys said into consideration. I turned off the lights, and now they are all spread out. I'm just happy that it isn't something I'm doing wrong.
