A couple of my Tiger Barbs seem to enjoy flicking their body along the airline in my tank. It can happen one at a time for a few seconds, and sometimes up to 4 at a time for a few seconds.

I've felt the airline, and it's a little slimey, but the water was only changed yesterday and I added Aquamaster Armour Coat.

Just not sure it's normal behaviour and my Platy has just started to do it as well.

Thanks Southfish.

Look like they're all coping fine. Must have been to impress a female TB in the tank - although I cannot sex them.

I've seen our fish doing this if too much water conditioner has been added. It's almost like the fish are itchy. Shouldn't cause any deaths or illness and should pass in a few days. Someone on here should be able to tell you in a much more detailled way why the fish do this. If you're worried, you could do a 20-30% water change and see if they stop doing it maybe.
