They do that everytime I come towards the tank. They're extremely social and rarely get spooked unless someone moves by fast. I feel like my frontosa are getting neglected right now. I'm giving these extra attention now until I get used to them and how to keep them healthy.

I just finished painting the back glass blue. It looks really cool. I'll get some pics up soon!

Marc

I painted the back glass with a sweet looking blue color I found at Lowes, added more river rocks, and bought some silk plants that look very realistic.
