Pangio kuhlii swimming up and down
Last week i bought ten Pangio Kuhlii. From day one they are swimming up and down on one side of the tank.
Does anyone know why they do this? I read that these fish normally are very shy and hide all the time.

Why sell them? That will be a lot of stress to put them through. Being caught at the shop. Changed to a different tank. Getting is to new water. Then to be caught again to be placed in another tank. To just get them out of my 50g I have had to break the tank right down just to get at them. And more so if they go into the sand or Gravel. You got to be careful not to crush them. So a hard task. And a waste of time.
Mine did that for the first few weeks in my 100g, then it was over. The reason IME was it did not at the time have enough cover. So I added more and they stopped.
While in my 75 there is what 17 Kulies in it, heavily planted they never ever did that when I added them!
