Does anyone have any tips on how to calm an excitable fish? Or even ways to expend some of their energy?
Stanley has always been an active fish. Lately however he has been getting more and more excitable when it comes to seeing me and when it's feeding time. It's gotten to the point that he's torn one of his fins this morning.
I've tried feeding him at certain times and even spreading it out over the day, no change. He's started to launch himself at the food and attack it. Silly boy nearly launched himself out of his tank!
I've tried putting a mirror in front of his tank to see if that would expend some of his energy through flaring but he's not very interested in it.
