So, today was time for Buddy's full water change. I don't normally do 100% on his tank, but I wanted to remove all the gravel I had originally put in there, and add the rest of the river stones I had for him. Buddy has always hated being cupped or netted, but I didn't have much trouble cupping him. I placed him in a spare 1g I have with about 3 inches of his water, and his log. I get done cleaning the tank of all the gravel, all his items back in...now to get him back into the cup. He started freakin'. The bowl I had placed him in is round so really tough to "trap" him into the cup..I managed to accidentally clip of the end of one of his fins
, and now I noticed he has what looks like a small scrape on top of his head. I doubt I can get a pic of it. Will he be okay? He seems totally unaffected by all of this, me, not so much. From now on..only changes with him IN his tank, or staying in the plastic cup. sigh...I feel so badly for hurting him.
