I haven't found a whole lot of info on glowing red eyes. I have heard that dragonscales will often go blind as they get older because their scales will grow over their eyes.
And I also was careful acclimating him. It took me at least two hours to do so. But I would think that shock would be more sudden? It definitely wasn't sudden.

I just checked on him and he was in his cave resting his tail on the gravel in a strange position. o_o Maybe he was sleeping? I figure he would sleep even with the lights on, lol. Before he went blind I had no idea where he slept because even if it was pitch dark he saw me coming, haha.

HOLY CRAP! I was just feeding Bahari and just about had a heart attack. I was feeding him with the skewer and he latched on to it which made me jump and kind of pull the skewer away and he was STILL LATCHED ON TO THE SKEWER. He fell off onto the top of DaBaDees tank then promptly flipped back into his tank.

I can feel my heart just jumping out of my chest right now. I may need to find a different way to feed him (or just be less jumpy).

I would think that would get him stressed out but he still seems fine right now. I need a breather.

Kind of, haha, besides the fact that I almost had a heart attack when I saw him laying on top of DaBaDees tank! They look so unnatural out of water! Hopefully I won't have to experience that again. He seems totally unphased, haha. I think it shook me up more than it did him!

For a second I thought I was going to have to scoop him up back into his tank but it took him less than a second to flip back into his tank. It seemed like such a short amount of time for that many things to go through my head! It's weird that my blind fish knew exactly how to get back into his tank lol.

I have seen many Bettas out of water. They seem so calm. Like its a routine. It happens to them every 2 days.

I'm glad he's ok! I dropped one on the floor and he was fine.
