Do not overfeed. Keep water perimeters clean

I kept it from 6" t0 12" before I sold mine.

well vertical is norm stress. esp in bare tank.

put some drift wood big ones where it can sit below it . so call sheltered.
it will be more calm.

tig dun really like to swim. only when dim lights or off lights, it will start hunting

If u really like always swim ard kind.
will be lince or vulture cat sort of. those love to comb tank for food.
