Over the last week Aladdin has just not been acting the same. He has clamped fins and seems to Always hide in his cave. He comes only to get air and to nibble at some food. I cant get pics at the moment but if you remember my thread "more pics of the family" Aladdin is the lovely bright purple vt. He does flare but when he does his beard does not fully come out and his fins stay clamped. What can i do ? Whats wrong??
