Finding out that Dragoon is a laid back fish, but also energetic, he rarely seems to stay still anymore, but that makes me happy to see him coming out of his shell and feeling happy. He's also smarter than Merlin since he knows to go lower down in his tank while I let the filter run. Luckily with this 5.5 gallon tank, Merlin's 1/2 of the tank isn't as disturbed by the filter as Dragoon's, but Dragoon is pretty much unfazed by the filter when it does run, and like I said, he figured out how to avoid the little bit of current at the top.
I've discovered that Dragoon likes the freeze-dried bloodworms I bought (for treats) while Merlin simply turns his nose up at them, he'd rather stick with his food, which is fine. Dragoon will just get the little extra treat. Maybe next time I'm at Pet Smart I'll see if I can find a snack Merlin will like.
