Hello again; I made a topic about this same fish when I first got him and I'm very sorry I never got back to those of you that replied then. :( Since my last post he has been acting healthy and happy up until now.
His operculum are opening up wider then I've seen on any fish and closing again; constantly. His mouth opens are closes along with it. Hes staying at the surface most of the time; when he does go down he dives down and comes right back up. He's also not interested in food at all. He's been like this since yesterday and all of today.
When I noticed this yesterday I gave him a 100% water change, lowered the water level, and added some aquarium salt. The temperature in the tank is at a constant 78 degrees. He lives in a 2 gallon tank and I've been giving him 100% water changes (which I've just read isn't good. blegh
) once a week. Could this be the cause of his strange behavior? Or could there be something else as well? I'm also not sure what I can do to stop this.
This picture is from yesterday; he actually looks a whole lot worse today. :( I will take some more pictures if you guys need them.. I don't want to stress him with the camera though.
Thank you for your time and I'm sorry if this post seems a little scrambled.
