I have 3 Yellow Labs and they are doing this strange thing where they are swimming against the current from the filter. It is like they are swimming in place. When I walk over to the tank they stop and swim over in my direction. I don't know if this is normal but when I turn the filter off they seem to swim normally. Anyone know if this is normal or what is going on with them? The other cichlids I have are not doing this and swimming around fine.

It is normal. Maybe they are smarter than your other cichlids. As long as they have other areas in the tank where they can relax.

Okay thank you for the info. I was just wondering, it looks a bit silly with the three of them lined up like they are racing but not going anywhere. lol

Ya, when I run my wave maker my fish will school up, all different kinds, and swim against the current turn around and flow with it to the other end like a slide :lol: . They do that for awhile then will hop out of the area when they had enough.
