SupersoNick95 Posted April 15, 2022 Share Posted April 15, 2022 pH: 8.4 Nitrates: below 20ppm Hardness: 300ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Ammonia: 0ppm KH/Buffer: 180-300ppm Water Temperature: 79 degrees so recently I have noticed one of my Shellie’s acting oddly. He will sit like this for most of the day but then infrequently he will get up and swim around and find a shell to inhabit. when it does go around swimming he looks perfectly normal. He (or she) sometimes also will display against some of the other Shellie’s through tail slapping. It sitting at the bottom only recently started and was somewhat sudden. I was gone for a day in University and came back to it sitting at the bottom. It seems healthy other than this weird behavior. Could it have been that he or she got picked on by one of the other Shellie’s displaying dominance? I know they can be quite aggressive towards each other and may even kill each other. Tank is a 20 long with 6 shellies. Shell to fish ratio is about 5-1. It’s also “overfiltered” with a canister filter meant to handle around a 55 gallon tank. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
