Well. friday and saturday morning, Raph was doing fine. I gave him a FD bloodworm (didn't know at the time to soak it for a few minutes first) saturday about noon and he gobbled it up. friday he had a couple of pellets.
And saturday night (after moving the Rev's cup over by his tank) Raph started clamping up. He didn't eat until sunday night when i got him to eat a few chrush up flakes.
I'm not sure why.
Might it be bloat from the bloodworm?
