AW: A. Geryi - Shyness
I have a odd experience on that topic: in one of my tanks (40 gals) which I
mainly use to raise juvenile killies, all killies except N.whitei are shy.
This tank is pretty low (knee hight) and is located so that when I go into
the room, I walk straight towards the tank.
The same fish, once moved into another tank always got rid of their shyness.
