So you think he is thinking enemy?
I thought since only a small piece of it is in the water he may have been like "FOOOD"
He never flares to a mirror :'( but he occasionally flares at me or my finger lol.
How would I know if he hurt him self attemping to bite it? Actually one time he did catch it.
Side note since I ahve been doing this a few times a day I have notice fin growth(my guy is a tail bitter) think him excersing could be helping disctract him?
