I have two daffodil brichardi cichlids in a 37 gal tank sold to me as a breeding pair, male about 3' female about 2'. They were very skittish for the first week and the male has started to venture and open up but the female is acting quite strange, starting yesterday staying behind the filter housing rather than in the cave she has been in. The tank is in a high traffic hallway in the house, will this cause them excessive stress? Looking for some enlightenment with these fish. Thank you.

I just got 4 of these cichlids and they seem to be very scared every time I walk up to the tank they run and hide is that normal.
