For those of you with tanks open to both sides....how do your fish act? I tried this with my 37 gallon and my fish just acted miserable. A group of 8 LF Zebra Danios were the 1st fish in, and they hid constantly or would get spooked and scatter if you even looked at them funny. Granted i only gave it about a week and then said i cant stand it anymore, and re-scaped and put a blackground on. With in a couple of hours they were back to acted like they should...not scared of ANYTHING! They are actually a PITA now when doing water changes, i have colorquartz on the bottom, so i dont siphon when doing water changes i just scoop and dump with a plastic container. But im constantly fighting them to get out of the way or fishing them out of my bucket cuz i accidentally am trying to throw them away with the bad water. lol Its a pain, but thats how i want them to act...fearless!
Anyway, maybe i just didnt give them enough time? But whats everyone else experience with this? Do your fish freak out too?
