Earl is doing pretty well! He's really blossomed and become quite the character. I got home today and he was flaring at nothing, goofy fish.
I've noticed that he'll go into what looks like a sleep stage for a really long time. His entire body stops moving.... gills, fins, everything. I've watched him for 5 minutes straight with him doing this and he just looks like a statue.
Is this normal? Is he just sleeping, or what? If I gently tap the side of the tank he'll wake up and swim all over the place. I think he only does it when the water is completely still in the tank. I don't know. It is alarming! Is this normal?
