He hasn't been moving or eating. He doesn't float in his plants at the top, he hides in a house that he has never been in at all. The only thing that has changed since he changed was adding root tabs, plants, growth on algae, no heater but like i said doing hot bottled water. His gills are deep "breathes out" but slow. When he goes to the top for air he goes really fast and back into his cave. Please help Rubin
