Hi all. I'm concerned about both of my boys. I will start with the one that has been going on the longest.
Vardaman has been laying on his side a lot lately. He sleeps on his side. Sometimes swims sideways. His appearance has not changed. I'm really puzzled as to why he has suddenly started this.
Also, for both of my boys, I tried to feed them tonight and they both had a very hard time eating. Vardaman got one pellet. I'm not sure that Algernon got any. It seems that they are misjudging where the pellet is floating and nipping a bit ahead of it in the water. They recently travelled home from college with me, a four hour drive. Their water went from city water to well water. It almost seems as if there is static in their water or something. I reached in to touch the water and it seemed like it popped. I have no idea what is going on!
Both boys are in 3 gallon tanks with 50 watt heaters. I don't have a water testing kit yet though.
