sbarbee54 My pfr fire reds do this as well. Always pulling them out of the HOB. They love the tasty biofilm in it, with all the crazy algae

speedie408 Glad to hear. Keep up the good work.

Forumsnow Ya she's the only one who did it. Think there was some tasty bits around it. She did a couple laps and went back in the water like nothing happened. It seems like she would get herself wet then go up there and eat till she started to dry out and went back to the water. Funny stuff, everyone seems happy so I don't think it's water quality problems.

speedie408 As long as you don't have anything for them to actually climb outside the confines of the tank, you'll be fine. Sometimes, shrimp climb out because they don't like the water params too so hopefully that's not your issue here. Is she the only one you seen do this so far?

angelsword That's cool. It seems like their bodies would just collapse if they were out of water but I guess not.

Supreme red out if water

So as I was doing a 1 gallon water change today I noticed a saddled supreme red climbing up my still running sponge filter output!

I watched her climb all the way up and around. She just hung out in the top for a good 5 minutes haha.

Used my macro lens was really cool to watch. All other neos and oebt's were acting normal.
