Figured I'd post an update seeing Socrates has really coloured up beautifully! He's got a lot more blue in him now, but his head is still white. I didn't really notice the change as it's been gradual, but I looked at his picture in the first post of this thread and there was a definite difference xDDD
He's a great eater and he's even more sociable and active than he was when I picked him up in the store. He comes over and dances whenever someone gets near his tank, and he still hasn't flared at anything in or around the aquarium. I did
hold up a mirror to experiment and he flared (and what a nice flare he has, I'll have to try and get a picture of it. A friend of mine was over and she loved how big his fins get when he stretches them). However, the mirror is the only thing he'll flare at.
He also dive bombs food as it sinks. As long as he sees it it's not going anywhere xD
