    Default Panicking Gourami

    So I have a three spot gourami I got a few months back. For the first few months she was just fine, calm and content. Then we moved houses. Now she panics whenever someone walks by the tank and I'm afraid she's going to hurt herself. I know they like floating plants, do y'all think this would help her stay calm? I would assume it is because it is in a high traffic area of the house, but it is no less than where she was in the old house.

    Right now the tank has a gravel substrate, a few rocks and a piece of driftwood that is set up so fish can hide under though it is low in the tank. I have quite a few plants but all of them are low growing. (Crypts, anubias, java moss) I have two amazon swords in the back but they haven't gotten very big. I'll try and get a picture. When we moved I lost the cord to the camera. It's in a box somewhere hahaha

    Floating plants should help. Taller plants would probably help as well.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Is the tank situated in a way, where the fish can actually see you approach, or is it in the corner somewhere, where it's right next to a wall that people pass by, so there's no fair warning, people just appear?

    Yes it is, but only if you come from one direction. She spooks when you come from either directions. The only thing that confuses me is that the place she was before we moved was worse. Right outside a door between the living room and the kitchen. So you know that got a lot of traffic and people just appearing. Maybe it just finally got to her or something. Poor thing. I'll go down to the LFS and see what I can get to give her more cover.

    Ok I went to the store and bought some Crypt Balansae. I'll place some in the back and a small amount in the front right corner. That way she has something to hide behind. I also was trying to get some water wysteria to grow in my tank and it wasn't doing well so I pulled it out of the substrate and as long as it does well it will soon give her cover as a floating plant.
