upside down rasbora?
I have an odd question. I have a 10G with 6 harlequin rasboras, a pair of agasizzi's, and a clown pleco. Lately, one of the rasboras has been going under a leaf of one of my plants (random leafs), and turning itself upside down, and kind of "hovering" for a few seconds upside down with it's belly near or touching the underside of the leaf. Has anyone ever seen such behavior before?Worked in the aquarium trade and owned red discus about a decade ago. Just getting back into the hobby now.

Could be the swim bladder. Your tank is too small for an adult clown pleco and agassizi. What are your water readings?

It's trying to, or is laying eggs. If you can spot them, then take them out and keep them in a safer tank! harlequins are so fun to breed, I've done it once, but couldnt get the fry to a safe place in time

Just a second opinion, J5589 has it right. Your 10 gallons is FAR too small to safely/adequately support your population. You need to upgrade to a bigger tank.8 tanks running now:
1x 220 gallon, 2x55 gallon, 1x40 gallon long, 1x29 gallon, 1x20 gallon long, 1x5.5 gallon, 1x2 gallon
