So sometimes I turn his filter off. Now, when its off, and his light is off, he swims around investigating the glass. When its off and his light is on, he swims around alarmed, and flares. It's beautiful, but i'm worried it stresses him out. When the light is off and his filter is ON, he swims around leisurely. I'm not sure what to do. He just has a 1 gallon, but i want to make sure he's the most comfortable where he is right now.

he seems more calm with the filter on but idk if its the best thing to have in there @_@. i know it wont create a true cycle and i still need to do 50% and 100% water changes a couple times a week. it just worries me since the surface is 90% bubbly.
