After reading the other thread on here about glass surfing I thought I'd ask about it.
One of my girls is a glass surfer...ALL the time. I've put plants towards the back where she "surfs" to try and get her to stop but she doesn't. I'm going to re-arrange the plants to they are right up against the wall when they grow a bit more.
I have 4 girls together (I think they are all siblings; I got them together at the same time from the same tank; I've had them about 2-3 weeks [cycled tank] and in that time there has been 2 slightly bitten fins that is it :))
What can I do to give her stimulation?
I tried putting a mirror up for them to have a flare at yesterday but; the 4 of them crowded around it and looked at it; that was it. No flaring lol. Since I have had them I saw one instance of flaring at a fish and one at a mirror for a split second.
In the tank I have bog wood with anubias attached; the bog wood forms a little cave and it splits the tank in to 2/3, 1/3 in the back 1/3 behind the bog wood there is a cluster of elodea and in the back of the other 2/3 there is a bigger cluster of elodea; I have an ornament in there which they use to hide in and I have some unknown plant shoved at the front (it was a hitch-hiker; leaves about an inch big; so I thought I'd try and plant it; if it grows great, if not, no worries).
For my male I have a turkey baster and he likes to chase the bubble up and down the tube and watch and try to eat the bubbles that come out of it; I tried it with the girls yesterday and no interest; they do however like trying to eat my bracelet lol.
I might try them with a ping pong ball actually; but what else can I do? :)
