Tian-Tian's current activity level: low. Apparently the old man can't keep up mid-morning.

Also noticed some alarming signs of fungus. I'm treating the tank now.
Man, this water supply up here must have its own problems or something. Sheesh.

Tian-Tian is doing otherwise all right... just staying close to the bottom of the tank, looking lethargic and unhappy.
I hope he recovers.

Maybe its just stress from the move. Hopefully, he'll perk up in a day or two.

I hope it's just the stress from the move and nothing worse.

He scared me just a minute ago. I was studying at my desk and I happened to look over at him just as he did a NOSEDIVE into HIS PLANT.

I surely thought he was kicking the bucket, because he rested upside-down like that for a full minute. After that, he came up to the front of the tank and flared at me, so I don't know if he was just kidding around or what.

I think I'll do a half water change tomorrow and see if he feels any better. Should I fast him tonight?

I would grab a few gallons of Spring water to fill his tank and then keep the jugs and go refill them. I refill them for 25 cents each here. It's a small investment to start spring water but the refills make it much more cost effective if you go that route.
Good luck with Tian-Tian and I am so sorry to hear about Taco.

Yeah I have one gallon jugs that I refill for tank water just so I always have them handy. Two are actual water gallons and the other 3 are milk gallons I cleaned REALLY well.

Yeah fasting him would be a good idea. I think he's just stressed from the move. It was quite a far trip. He should be okay.

Whew, all right, y'all. I'm gonna head to my hometown (hour and a half away) on Friday for a quick business trip (be back Saturday). I'll see what I can do about getting some spring water. I need to get groceries for myself, anyway. :)

One interesting thing I've noticed is that Tian-Tian's head and facial structure seems to be defining itself over time. If I were to look really close at him, he looks like a very old man, with sharp temple bone indents and everything.

He's still lethargic. I just got in from class (about to head out again in a few) and he flared at my arm on the desk near him, so he's got some fight in him, yet.

Again, thanks for your support and advice, y'all. I really appreciate how kind and generous this community is. :)
