'Hyperactive' Otto

I recently added an Otto to my 8 gallon nano and I've never had one of these fish before. It rarely seems to stop moving and I'm wondering if this is typical behaviour of the species or if it's a stress behaviour.

When I first added mine they were swimming all over for a couple days. One became my first and only jumper :( the other has calmed down a lot.
Mine's swimming around randomly and i've had it for a month or so. the ratio of random swimming to eating is around 8:1
They are super active little tykes and if they just sit in one place for too long, it's a sign that they aren't feeling good. So, I guess yours is perfectly healthy.
Thanks LB79, I'll take your word for it!
