    Fish swimming up and down glass

    Iíve read itís normal? But the espei rasboras I got kind of spend their time swimming up against the glass?? What should I do? Is it normal? I have 5 galaxy rasboras, 4 espei rasboras and about 8 micro euro rasboras is it over crowded? Itís heavily planted tank hopefully I wonít need to take any out bc itíll be super hard

    Hand them a squeegee and maybe you will never have to algae scrub, again.

    How long have you had them? They might still just be getting used to their new surroundings.

    I've seen this in other fish, and it was caused by them seeing their reflections in the glare. Are they doing this where the glass is transparent, or is there already some sort of paint or backing there?
