Hes has been in a holding tank with daily water changes till he got acclitmated to the well water. we have high calcium and I had them in bottled water till we got a better filter onthe house. About 2 days ago he started to look alittle bloated, he doesn't eat much and I have never had this problem with him before. Any other help would be great.
