Dargo seems to like riding the current

Dargo seems to like riding the current from the filter. Every now and then he slowly edges up to where the water comes out of the filter and then darts into the current, rides it down and circles around to do it again.

He seems to enjoy it and the current isn't very strong, so hopefully it doesn't hurt him.

D'Argo became part of our family on 4/6/11
His home is a 10 gallon planted tank.

I am sure he will be fine. One of mine, Sunset, loves it when the current is just strong enough to moves his food around. He loves to chase it. At least it seems like he does! :)

Mine not only likes to ride down but he also likes to swim up the current sometimes. He will struggle and fight his way to the top do a little circle and go down and do it again.

Mine does the same thing!!!! He LOVES riding the current, and also wrapping himself around the filter and heater.
