hi everyone,
people who have read my post under journal and photos would know that I recently got a new cuttle and has been feeding already. but today after it has eaten for bout 15-30 mins or so it started swimming all over the tank almost non stop, I am worried that it may get too tired but doing this and idea why is my cuttle doing this??? Thanks! :biggrin2:

I've seen this in alot of my cuttles where they become hyperactive for some time, it doesn't seem to have any ill effects at all, excersise perhaps?

i suppose it could be exercize! i hadnt thought of that

unless... there wasnt a quick light change or anything - is it 'scared' swimming or 'curious' swimming... lol i never thought i would investigate different swimming moods of cephs!!!
