yeah something is wrong with torr.

Water temp 79. Divided, filtered on other side, 10 gl tank. He ate tonight. But Necro who never flares is flaring at Torr who loves to flare but isn't. He will flare the beard a bit but then kinda just floats a bit on top. He is seeming lazy and usually he is active. So I checked the water and its all good, levels are all good. What could it possibly be? What kind of preventative steps can I take? I have a small 3/4 th gal that I just put water from his tank into. Now, is that harmful? I was just thinking since his water was good then that would be ok. Is it? Right now he's in a lil cup just to get him away from Necro. Help.

He could be stressed from all the flaring. He probably should not be able to constantly see his tank mate.

I second betta325. From what I've read, mostly on this site (!), that can really wear them out.

In a 10gal divided/filtered- but new setup that most likely the nitrogen cycle has not established yet......it may need some more frequent water changes.....even though the test strips read normal......I would start a twice weekly 50% water change on the tank and see if that will perk them up any....once the nitrogen cycle has established weekly 50% with vacuum should maintain water quality.....

Thanks. Will check him when I get home. I did move him to the smaller tank by himself though.
