I'm pretty sure my Clown Loach has ADD

Most of the day he'll swim from the gravel straight up to the surfase repeatidly or from one end to the other at the top so fast he makes ripples. Sometimes he'll swim in crazy circles for hours at a time, he's crazy.

I have a dojo loach that does that, except only in very violent bursts. Then it will sit still for a while.

I have a cory who does that... And two freshwater gobies who also act like that sometimes. ADD FISH OWNERS, UNITE!

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

I think you mean ADHD. If your clown loach just sat there staring off into space for hours on end then he would be ADD. LOL
