Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!

I'll keep in mind the food thing. I got a heater, but it doesn't seem to be working right so I'll have to fiddle with it.

Also about feeding, Kevin seems to only like to eat the food when it starts to fall through the water, not when its floating, and only a bit better when its sunk. Is that normal?

Every fish is different. I have some that will chase it down at the surface, others that will wait a bit to get it at the surface and one that grabs it from the surface and darts away like I'm going to take it back.

No worries if he likes to wait until it sinks a bit.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Great looking guy you have there.
He would be happier in a bigger tank/bowl. And careful with plastic ornaments, they might tear his fins.

Hope you enjoy your stay and find all the answers you need.
