i think he is getting old

I think tough guy is getting old. his fins are looking aged and he is not as feisty as he once was. before he would flare at anything. now he just placidly swims by every thing like an old man. besides, i have had him for almost two years. i will post picks of him when my new camera arrives probably around wed, just in case its not age, and its something i can hopefully fix.

Have you tried switching his food? Sometimes live brine shrimp (rinsed) once or twice a month, plus some live worms can help them perk up. What temp is the water at?

water temp is at 82 degrees. and now he is very active. i think that it was because it was at 72 degrees this morning when i left for work.

im still gonna take picks of him when i get my new camera, because i dont know if he has fin rot or not. i was comparing him to some old pictures i have of him, and it looks like he has lost some finnage. i will post then and now picks asap.
