 Crawling up the sides

I got a new Emperor on Saturday and everytime it comes out it walks all around the tank then goes to each corner and seems to try and crawl up the side, it does it for a few hours too. I dont think thats normal.

Quite normal, itís inspecting its new home. As long as you have ample substrate for it to burrow, some good hides and a shallow water dish, it will settle down in a few days or so.

Itís by far the most aggressive one Iíve had. Iím guessing thats probably because it isnt used to the new habitat yet. In the pet shop it seemed really calm and barely moved at all when the guy picked it up. I have coconut bark and moss in there, two different hides that are pretty big, and a big but shallow water dish. So I guess thats all good but Iím not sure if the substrate is good enough to burrow in.

A 5 gallon is fine for one emp. If you aquire another at some point in time and want them to cohabitate, youíll need a 10 gallon. Thatís for adults, smaller emps of course would not need that much room.
