Pea Puffer Glass Surfing

Recommended Posts

Happy Monday All! 

I just noticed one of my pea puffers doing a lot of glass surfing. Is this normal? She's eating well and looks fine. I checked tank parameters and they're good and stable.  

Tank temp: 75

Ammonia: 0

Nitrite: 0

Nitrates: ~40

pH: 7.6 

Water change once a week ~30 percent but last change was ~50 percent deep cleaning

Feeding a rotation of frozen blood worms, frozen brine shrimp gut loaded with spirulina, snails. Feed small amounts twice a day. 

In a moderately planted 10g with one male and two other females. No signs of aggression or odd behavior with the others.

Glass surfing can be a sign of stress some fish just like to glass surf when there nothing Wong if she's eating ok and not getting bullied by the other fish I would just keep an eye on her for now

Ok thank you! I wasn't sure if this is just something more intelligent fish do, or if she's just bored or if something is wrong but I can't find any evidence that something is wrong.
