not true in all varieties, Synodontis cats love to be front and center, but not suited for a small tank. corys love swimming around as long as there are a few of the same variety. i'd say its closer to a 50/50 on hiding vs open water cats

I'm responding to the thread about a native (native to United States) aquarium. Not sure what you're responding too.

side note, i was in petco last night picking up some dog food, and i overheard and employee ask a customer if ick was caused by stress. just shows how little you can trust the average pet shop employee

What does cause ick and how can it be prevented? I've seen it mentioned on a few threads but never explained.

"Did ya try klankin' it?"
