Title: Fish uprising?
Post by: kromagg on November 16, 2017, 05:10:15 PM
My fish scare me sometimes..
Black angel was a Dick to white one.. So I put him to jail for a while.. When I came back.. All 3 free angelfish were guarding the prisoner.. THEY DIDN'T EVEN MOVED WHEN I DROPPED THE FOOD....

I was like wtf.... Are they guarding him for his safety? Or to make sure he will not break free...

On the video I recorded guard change... It's like its planet of apes but with fish...

On the other hand............very nice tank and your Angels look very nice and healthy. In regards to the prisoner, I've experienced a similar incident one time with a solid black angel that was, ah, ummm, a little $h*t inside the tank and was giving all the other fish grief. He even charged the front glass when I approached. I traded him outright fast after a week of that went by. He was also a mature fish, but not old. Sometimes you wind up with a bully of sorts and sometimes it is just a hierarchy adjustment with the other fish in the tank.
