The internet really does cause a lot of anxiety!!
My fish is super active and has been ever since I first brought him home swimming most of the day and resting when I leave my office (he is usually napping in his log when I come back from a meeting or lunch.
One of his main things to do is dart back and forth along the front of the fish tank. Is this normal?? (he does it ALOT) some people say yes, others say it's because he's sick... He eats great, is interactive and doesn't hide (when not swimming like a speed swimmer he chills and watches me work and builds bubble nests. He doesn't clamp his fins either...
He's in a cycled filtered heated 5Gal tank and partial water changes are done weekly with gravel vacuuming.
Is he sick ? He has a few white spots on his face (to the right of his eye) but they have been there since he was a baby and haven't changed or spread... See below..
Also on his back fin I don't believe its fin rot, He's has some blue that looks black in the photo but is actually a purple when it layers on the red. It's blue when fanned out and this has not changed at all in the past 4 weeks or so. I am adding another photo below to show how it looks when fanned out. (He's smelling his flowers lol)
Thanks for the opinions and help! This is stressful :(
