In my experience, my New River Tincs like to sit on one large rock over which water gently flows as a waterfall. There can't be more than 1/16 - 1/8 of an inch of water that flows over the top of it. My waterfall is nothing more than some large, flat pieces of flagstone (Pennsylvania Bluestone) that are stacked on top of one another with a pump outlet set on top of them and disguised by some rounded river stones.
Frankly, I don't know if it's "normal behavior" or not, but they seem to enjoy it. Below is a pic of one of them posing on that rock.
:In my own experience with tincs I've found that they enjoy bodies of water from time to time. I think they especially like picking off the helpless fruit flies that get trapped in the water. I've also seen some recent posts that attest to this notion of water-loving tincs, so provide a body of water, just don't make it too large or too deep. Best,
::you know what, I have the same book, but everyone is telling me different so I figure I'll give it a try and see if they use it.
