How often do you do water changes? What are you feeding how often and how much? What temperature is your water? Can you provide a picture?

What color was he when you got him? Was he the same as he is now, if that's the case that could just be his coloring.

How is he acting?
What are you feeding him?
How big is his tank/bowl?

i feed him 2 pelets twice a day. he was actually really bright red with a little bit of blue on the tip of the fins.but now he is sort of a peachy color . the temperature is always between 76 and 79. he acts very curious and active but if i put my finger on the glass he will go and hide in his cave and stay there until i leave.

up the temperature to 82*F.
Feed him a little more, maybe three times a day.
and give him a complete water change.


How big is the bowl?

Try 3 pellets twice a day or 2 pellets 3 times a day with the food, but not more than 6 a day. Optimal temperature for them is 78-80.

How long have you had him? I'd certainly do a water change. You can't do it often enough in a bowl. How big is the bowl?
