His belly is odd. It looks slightly larger, and like he got his belly scales rubbed off. He was flaring, dancing, and nest building in the spawning tank. And, as if things weren't already bad, when I moved him out of the spawning tank my other HMPK boy jumped out on to the carpet.
Now he has raggedy fins, but still acts healthy.
Edit: And the sick boy is my 5 year old brother's. He would be really sad if he died :'(
