He's not a CT. He looks like he COULD be a mix between a CT and a VT though.

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).

Like the Fire Demon from Howls Moving Castle? X3

Couple of thoughts...
You say you don't think he likes the filter current. Just use a sponge (Make sure it doesn't say NOT FOR AQUARIUM USE!) and just rubberband it around the filter outflow. And just adjust it now and then till you feel he's most pleased with it.

What Temp is your tank? They need to be between 75-80F... You may know that but eh... doesn't hurt to write it.

He's cute.

Yes the fire demon from howls moving castle, pretty much one of my favorite movies. :) Thanks you guys and it looks like the tank is sitting at......70F. I cant make it much warmer, but hes moving around just fine. He is really active. More active than i expected, especially considering the store got there shipment in today too, so he has moved ALOT today.

Heh heh... that's a neat tank. Calcifer is a cool name, and unusual too!
