Hello Everyone, I have a bit of a problem with my Gadrian. He was once in a 1.5 Heated Gal. tank, but he seemed to become lethargic staying at the bottom of the tank, standing on his head, or tail. So I figured, the standing on the head was because of boredom, so I moved him to the 1 Gal tank on my dresser.
But then he became worst, hiding within his cave, laying on the bottom of the tank, staying on his tail, and seemed to struggle to get food or air. I peered at him today as he laid on top of the cave and I think I saw some raised scales right after his gills. Hes white so it was hard for me to see it unless I really peered at it.
Here is some information:
