That makes me wonder as well... My CT was in a unfiltered 2 gallon bowl, which he was quite happy in, but I got tired of cleaning it so often since it was awkward to clean. So I bumped him up to a 3 gallon filtered tank, and I'm working on cycling it. I wonder if it will help uncurl his fins....? :/ Hmmm.
Also, in response to the post above: Yes, leaving tap water out allows chlorine to evaporate, but chloramine does NOT evaporate and stays in the water. This is still toxic to fish. I ALWAYS recommend using water conditioners, no matter what kind of water is used. You never really know what is all in the water.
