He just doesn't seem interested in food. Actually seems like he is eating off the bottom of the tank. I gave him a couple pellets a little while ago, and waggled my finger in the water to attract him. He came over, put a pellet in his mouth and spit it out, so I tried a few flakes, he stuck his nose up at them. Can it take this long for some to get settled? He swims back and forth a lot in his tank, like he's patrolling. I do see him relax once in a while, but I'm still concerned. Any advice would be much appreciated. thanks!
