Green spotted puffer, why?

Postby dizziblonde66 » Thu May 29, 2008 9:49 pm

My puffer has plenty of space in his tank to swim and plenty of objects to swim around,under, through etc. He has weed and his fed and eats well.
BUT all he seems to want to do is swim up and down the tank non stop (apart from food time). I have changed the setting of the tank and all he does is change where he swims up and down?? Im confused why he doing it, can he be bored???

Also he does live on his own since he attacked and ate his tank mates about 6 months ago.
