Very true he could be older than he looks.
He does not flare at his tank mate he does get feisty at me sometimes when I have him in the petkeeper while I clean the tank so I can't say he doesn't flare, just not as often as he used to.
Water parameters are A-ok.
His behavior came on suddenly at first, now its progressively getting worse.
