i have yet to find out if he dislikes the 2.5. i just put him in the 2.5 and i'll bring the the heater up to 25 celsius as he was in an unheated tank. it'll be 27 later on for Nel. i know theres more reflection than he's used to. its being put into a tank 2 gallons larger that worries me a bit. atm im keeping the room lights dim for the 2.5g and 1g. i'll give him 8 days to reach a descision for the 2.5g. the DT seems happy in the 1g but he's going to be in a 2.5g as a permanent tank.
my VT is easier to take care of bc he doesnt seem to like darker water ATM (tail bites). he likes clear water and the occasional potty break. the DT is another story: ph issues, tail biting and what not. both are jeckyl and hyde. DT passive but notorious tail biter, VT agressive but very few tailbiting issues o.O.
aret those scrubbing pads used for dishwashing suitable for cleaning acrylic tanks? i have 1 pad thats avoided soap so far for cleaning tank cleaning.
