Grrr...Mr.Grumpy Gills

My new DT is a mr.Grumpy Gills, he is flaring up a storm despite having a small case of tail biting and small case of fin rot.

He might see his reflection in the glass. You could try turning off the light in his tank (if there is on that's on), or turning off/on the room lights. Or, you could try putting something around the back & sides of his tank to cut down on any reflection in the glass....

That's funny. Does he only flare at you, or other people too?

My guy flares at me when I wear orange or red. He used to flare at his thermometer for the same reason. (There's some red on it.) My other male ignores me, except when I pick up his food container. And my female VT always does a wiggle dance when she sees me because she is *sure* that I'm there to feed her.
