    What are the water parameters, including temperature?
    They do "gut breathe" so it isn't that unusual, but it would be unusual for them to be there all the time and indicate a problem with the water.
    Sent from my PC as I still don't understand the the logic for mobile internet usage ;) *grin*
    I really hate "autocorrupt"!!!

    If they're gasping at the surface constantly you will have water issues. If they're zipping around all over the tank that's pretty normal. Shop bought ones are usually very young and my fry growing on tank has cory's all over the place. They're super active and energetic always swimming from the bottom to the surface. They settle down and seem to stay more 'grounded' once they reach their full size after a year or two.

    If they are just gasping at the top, then check the water ASAP! :)
