We just got home from shopping, and I sent Rob in to feed the fish..I watched closely of course lol...then he got to Bandit and Bali's tank, and Bali did not come to the top of the tank! I thought at first it might be that he didn't recognize Rob, but even when I went over and wiggled my finger in the tank, he just stayed in the plants near the back, and near the bottom. I have seen him swim a few times since we got home, but is not acting like himself. Should I take him our right away, or wait and see. The tanks is warm right now, 82 because it was hot today, but none of the other fish are acting this way.
