I have an air stone in my tank and the salmon tail keeps swimming down the buble stream and then coming out spitting out the bubbles and then repeating it is this bad for it?

Rollie is right. He most likely just like it. I know that some oscars spend most of their time standing in the buble stream protecting it from other fish so I assume that other fish, in this case a salmon shark, can like it in the same way.

hey

no this is not bad at all. some fish just like to do this. sometimes they may do if thier gils are dirty as well.

my old peacock bass used to do this all the time.

i wouldn't worry about it.

my old upside down catfish used to go to the bottom, turn upside down, and ride the bubble stream back to the top. He could do that for about an hour at a time.

there's a 250 gallon african tank close to my house at a store with three of the 12" bubble wands in the tank. i watch the fish swim constantly through the bubbles every time i'm there.

Thats a HUGE tank!!!! Have any of you guys ever seen the 2500 gallon tank some one built in their basement? The put three 2 and a half foot sharks in last time i checked. It was pretty awesome.

I couldnt find the exact one, but i did find a smaller one of the same concept.

They have black tip sharks in theirs, They can get up to 7 feet long!

I have those air stones in all of my tanks and All of the fish do that I think it is also a way for them to play...My Red Eye Tetras live in the bubbles swimming up and down all day long...I hardly think it is bad for them if it was in any way harming them I don't know for sure but I doubt they would keep doing it.

I have one of the 12" bubble bars in one corner of my tank, and I'd say mostly the corys are the ones always riding the bubbles and weaving back and forth through the wall. Sometimes I catch my guppies in there, as well.

When I used to have the 48" wand along the back, and the tetras were the only fish in my tank, they would pick one corner where the bubbles was largest and would take turns riding it to the top.

all fish do it, its a bit like you being in doors all day but ever so often going outside for some fresh air.
