ok so im having all sorts of bad luck with Hikaru - he stopped dashing around the tank now and was fine for a while!
But last friday i came home to find his abdomen quite distended and bloated - i thought he prob had constipation, so fasted him for 2 days then fed him a small bit of boiled pea. The bloating subsided and i thought he was fine - but since sunday he has been acting weird. He used to be quite active and now just hides in his cave most of the time unless i come near the tank in which case he will come out and swim around, and also he used to flare when i put a mirror up to the tank, but when i do it now he just looks at it swims away and they developes white horizontal stress lines! what is going on, could he just still be feeling a bit under the weather after the whole bloating incident?
I'm still having probs with ammonia levels being too high but am trying to manage it the best i can with regular water changes! could this be causing it?
tanks info etc to follow....
thanks for any help, as usual much appreciated
