Why do my fish go into hiding when I approach the tank? Those in the shop are not afraid of people. In fact the would swim to you for food. I read in an article once that we should provide them with any hiding place.Is this true?
Also, my fish would not eat pellets but only frozan bloodworms. I find this a little incovenience. How long can they last without food just in case?
You are facing environmental problems.For example:You told us you like keeping fish in bare tank.You don’t provide them with hiding place.My fish go into hiding when I approach them.
All these above show your fish don’t feel secured. They are not happy where they stay. They are afraid. All activities around the tank will frighten them.
