Wll day two and he is Terrified of me...and still won't eat. I can't put him into the 10 gallon til I know that he is disease free..(was in dead fish's container etc). He freaks out everytime i walk into the room, i am so scared he is going to hurt himself, he swims so fast and frantic and looks like he is going to swim into the walls!
I am not used to that! Spiderfish and Sky came from a very good pet store around the corner, fish are all well cared for and fed, they were piggies who wanted my attention and food right away.

Give him time. Some of mine didn't warm up to me until about a week.

Huh good thing there isn't a meijers in my area. I already have enough fish!

LOVE the name you picked for him :) Hopefully he comes around. And I think I would have had to slap that stupid girl.

it is only a half gallon but I don't want to add him to the 10 gallon until I know he is not contagious..Spiderfish lived in this cube for 6months before I knew he should have a bigger area (now 3 gallon)

do they seriously charge money for fish in that bad condition though?????? they should be thanking you that you took him off their hands and saved them waste (caus clearly he would have been dead 30min later!!)
