I’m afraid to stock my Walstead tank with anything after reading this. I’ve had many regrettable purchases, but the one that sticks with me are the dozen rosy barbs I put in a 55. They were the long-finned type and gorgeous. But hyperactive. Up, down, left right, zig, zag, EVERYWHERE ALL DAY AT 90 MILES PER HOUR. That was 25 years ago, and I still remember how anxiety producing they were.
This was funny to me, I have 5 rosy barbs in a 30 gallon walstad tank. They are active but mine do relax every so often, especially because in the afternoon for a few hours my lights go off (siesta lighting schedule), they end up taking a bit of a snooze as well.
