How many gallons? 2.5g
Age? Not sure.Got him June 12th and he appeared full grown...
Where is s/he from? From Petco
Tankmates? none
Heater or filter? a 25w Hydor Theo heater, no filter
How often is the tank cleaned? Normally one 50% water change and one 85-90% water change with vacuuming a week. Its more frequent 50% changes at the moment since he had a tail biting episode.

How much water is taken out? see above.


However, I am in the middle of cycling a new tank for him. So he'll be getting moved soon into a cycled 5g with a heater and filter.
