    In reading back through this challenge I noticed you're required to wrap your tank in white what is the reasoning behind that.

    Hi Jeanne, covering the back and sides of a tank makes the fish feel more secure. Gives them a sense of place (if that makes any sense). In a bare bottom tank where the bottom is not covered the fish will skate (swim along the bottom of the tank at a angle) and they will seem very unsettled. They will continue to skate the bottom until you do something about it. My QT bottoms are not covered or painted so I keep a very thin layer (1/8 of an inch) of sand on the bottom.

    The skating behavior is similar to adding a new group of discus to an unknown tank and you will see them pacing the tank as a group. After about 24 hours the fish will settle down and quit the pacing.
