My fish, who is usually very active and outgoing, is being really weird today. He is being twitchy when swimming (video here: http://tinypic.com/player.php?v=r7ob5t&s=6
) , and sitting right up against the filter, his log, or his pineapple picture here: http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=opoaau&s=6
. I'm concerned. is something wrong? he kind of reminds me of my past betta right before he died... help!
