i worry about feeding my guy too much, but wonder if feeding instructions are according to a room temp, small enclosure vs. a heated 10g where he gets to swim around and be active.
He's no lazy fish thats for sure... I think he likes to pull pranks too... Got up this morning (Bout an hour ago) and I didn't see him in the tank, so I assumed he had jumped through the gap at the front of the tank where the 'Hood' has an opening for feeding (It has a thing you can close it with, but I don't use it since thats where that vine goes in... and trust me he LIKES the vine RIGHT where it is).
Anyway... I go over to the tank all flipped out thinking he's around the top or stuck in the filter... looked around the floor... Then a minute later...
He sticks his head out of this little cave thing as if I had woken him up (He rarely used it before, now he frequents it) and then goes back to his daily fluttering around...
Perhaps I should just give him the 4 pellets a day then since he never has bloated yet and after 4... he stops begging and acts all content.
Hmm... odd question the tank hood has LED lights... DAY and NIGHT setting... both are very good... but I dunno I just feel that Drax gets all flustered (He looks up at the lights) when I turn it to night... maybe I need a better transition hahaha
I think he's obsessed with the lamp next to the AQ haha whenever I turn it on he immediately goes over to the right side of the tank... I don't know whats so special about it... Old Lamp with shredding fabric hood/cover/thing, outdated yellow bulb haha maybe it looks like a sunset through the glass to him? XD (Cuz it's kinda dim) So I've been keeping that on from dinner to before I go to bed before turning it off and just having the 'NIGHT' setting on.
ALSO ... YES I TALK ALOT! Think I'm FINALLY getting a hang of this dang filter! Was doing a small water change... (Because I'm weird) and I was watching the filter's outflow and noise and I finally found a good balance (It's bubbling kept me up last night... light sleeper I swear I could hear Drax getting air (Which sounds like a VERY quiet kiss, kiss the air quietly... thats what he sounds like))
