Heroman was moved to a new "tank" on Tuesday from his .5G hex to something exactly like this
except the print is different (his tank is Christmas themed with instead of crayons, he has a red and green plaid print). I cleaned it thoroughly beforehand as well, just in case. He has gravel at the bottom, a betta leaf on one half of the "tank" and three fake plants on the other half which he uses as a hiding place.
Here is the issue. When he was in his tiny .5G tank, he had a TON of energy. He was constantly fighting with his reflection even though there were a lot of obstacles. Now, all he does is kinda float -near- his little jungle without actually doing anything. He's less active even though the water is warmer and I've been giving him a mix of flakes and bloodworms. =/ Today, he's getting a tank heater, a couple of plants and I was hoping a tank buddy, but if he's too lethargic for that perhaps not....
Any ideas?? Pics will follow.
