Glass Surfing

Postby tetriminoss » Sun Jun 09, 2019 10:40 am

I have a glass 40 gallon aquarium. So I thought he was fighting his reflection so I added a background.
I have put it outside the aquarium, it did not fix glass surfing and still trying to catch the wave.

I can see a faint reflection, should I move the background inside?

Glass surfing could be he wants out or his UVB could be to strong and hes trying to get away from it-- how far is the UVB from him the tank pic doesnt show it-- and it could also be the temp -- the dial thermometer does not give accurate temps in tank - you need to get a IR gun--- infrared heat gun from Walmart Home Depot or Lowes for around $10 --- I would start there -- please leave the background on the outside of tank -- after you get a accurate temp in tank we can go from there -- also you might want to invest in a digital probe therm for the cool side of tank ---

I just added the background, could that be the reason? Maybe he feels something has changed and it stresses him out?

Idk but I am guessing temps-- I would get an accurate temp first - then go from there
