So I have Link is a 3gal clear storage container. He seemed to be doing well for the past week. He has some "bald spots" on his head. I'm not sure if it is a disease or he managed to rip some scales off. They're not white but a bit lighter than his regular color and I have yet to seem them get worse or spread.
Also, he's been on and off about eating. Just yesterday he ate his normal amount of food and today he would eat just a little. So I changed his water and he sometimes darts around and tries to hide under his cup when the tank gets tapped. I don't think he is gasping for air because he's been hiding in the back of his cup. Any thoughts?
Also, I have to go on winter vacation for two weeks and don't think I can get him on the plane with me because of the 3oz liquid laws and if I leave him with the family back home he will not get taken care of properly. So I have no choice but to leave them with the RAs in my dorm building. I know they probably won't change the water and they probably won't know how. I want to have my fish be alive when I get back, can anyone help?
