Thanks for the advice guys!!, all of you helped and I'll try fast him for 3 days now.. so no feeding him for 3 days? oh god it's going to be a pain to be unable to feed him T_T but oh wells, I'll listen to your advices.. and yeah I have witnessed Riki pooping when I flashed the mirror in front of him once! I'll take that advice to mind and do it..

BTW one last question.

Is it okay if the window is 2m away from his tank (direct sunlight) not too bright? His got a dark spot in his tank to hide if needed.

I don't think direct sunlight is good for them.

They dont overly like it, like if it was all day. Its sort of annoying. But, if you truly think he has enough shade, then it shouldnt be to bad. Id say move it away if you can, though. Or make sure he doesnt get too too much. Yoy might also get algae, which is a pain if it gets bad enough.
