Any tank mate in either of the tanks you have him in.....
I cannot get a very good quality photo of his problem. I've had him for a year or so. Maybe a little longer. His appetite hasn't changed any. He gets fed every morning. He has never been sick. No additives, no live plants.
Here are the specs of his previous tank:
Here is the filter he had:
3 lbs of white gravel
rock like tunnel with fake red plastic greenery on the side
fake red plastic plant
Temp is ALWAYS maintained around 75 degrees F
15% water changes once a month done with a gravel vacuum
gravel gets vacuumed during water changes
No tank mates
New tank specs:
Here is his current tank. http://www.bettafish.com/picture.php...ictureid=15599
I bought it at PetsMart but I couldn't find the actual product online.
Same amount of gravel
Temp remains the same.
Even the decor is nearly in the same position
Over half of the water in this tank is from his previous tank.
The ONLY behavior change was when the filter in the previous tank finally stopped working. That was a week and a half ago. He swam less and towards the beginning of this weekend he started flaring at me and getting aggressive towards me.
Since I've put him into his new tank he resumed normal behavior. He is swimming normally, he has stopped being aggressive towards me.
His appetite between in that time never changed.
