My sens are trying to escape the tank. Is that normal? Or there is something wrong with the water?

mine is always swimming. do you have a h.o.b? I've seen several of my Bichirs trying to swim up stream and a few made it out the h.o.b. . just recently I had an ornate do it and I found him a bit stiff but I put him in the tank and he's slowly recovering. h.o.b is now off that tank.

Are they trying to actually escape or just swimming around? Hopefully you have all potential exit holes covered. Poly peeps will often use duct tape or craft mesh/egg crate to help with that.

I'd be curious about your water readings and also would like to see a photo of your tank.
