Just got him this afternoon. Did the properly tank introducion etc.
he has decided to remain clamped, dangling at the water's surface. Not moving for hours.
Sometimes he's beating his pectorals pretty fast. his mouth is positioned at the water surface so he simply gulps air. I cannot see anything physical. No white fuzz no nothing, I dont think he even has fin rot.
He is just lethargic, clamped and hangs lifeless in one spot. If anyone can help me diagnose him, I'll be ever so grateful :)
I'm increasing his temperature to 82, it hasnt gotten there yet...
