Quite frequently- he'll go to the bottom and scratch, swim around for a minute and back tot he bottom again. I think it's the gill area, but It's difficult to tell.
I haven't had him very long. Only about 4 days. 5.5 gallon, filter, Java moss and java fern? Using prime, a tiny bit of salt, but not much since I have plants (although in research the java fern is supposed to be fine with brackish waters, and the java moss is suposed to tolerate it... so I'm not too worried about it.)... heater to 78F,
I tried to get pictures, but none have turned out at all good. There is nothing visually wrong with him either I can see no visual indications of sickness other than the flashing, that I can tell at least.
