*** had mbunas for the last 5 years, and occasionally they swim frantically up and diwn the sides of the tank, especially when theyre new..without exploring the rest of the tank. I just stocked my 75 gallon tank with all new fish and theyre all doing it, its always been stressful for me to watch so *** always wondered why exactly they do it..? I tried to upload a video but it wont let me.

We call it pacing and they find it stressful to be in a new place. They are exploring their new environment and trying to see if there is any way to escape?
