Backwards Zebra?

Post by TwoTankAmin »

This is a first for me. One of my breeders has recently taken up residence in a cave. There would be nothing unusual about this except that every time I have checked the cave, the fish is facing out not towards the back of the cave. I have never seen this before. Yes, one may get reversed now and then but this time we are talking about this going on for a few weeks now. I am not sure, but I think the fish is a fm.

Has anybody else seen this sort of behavior before? Does anybody have a clue? Should I be concerned or should I just assume it is just another case of learning something new about my fish yet again?

The one thing I didn't consider is that maybe it is watching me :roll:
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.

Hi i'm no expert but just think this normal for them.Mine have done this and did not come to anything this pic was taken some time ago and nothing happened. I think they just probably feel safer looking outward.Maybe someone has other idea hope this helps.

I thought females don't go inside caves at all? Am I wrong?

My male also does the same thing.... specially when the lights are off.
