Aristotle, my lovely Grizzle CT, has been acting really weird lately. I can't diagnose it.
Usually during the night, sometimes even during the day, he will freak RIGHT out. He won't jump at all, but he zips around his tank like an absolute maniac, and often runs into the walls so I end up hearing repeated BONNG sounds. I came home today and noticed he has a small hole in his dorsal, so the plant he has in there may be too sharp. He's resting at the bottom of his tank, but does come up for air easily and ate just as excitedly as he usually does. He's not sideways and doesn't have any spots and I see no trace of velvet, either. His scales aren't pinecone'd and he's not bloated.
