so, i didn't want to put this in the health/emergencies section, because i know some people there have actual emergencies, and i didn't want to take up any attention from them.
so. i pride myself on stress free tank removal. seriously, i have learned how to get yangtze out of his tank, using a cup without him even noticing...or so i thought.
today i removed him, with his cup, and it looked as if he didn't notice (no darting, no heavy breathing, etc).
i set his cup down, and when i looked next, he was PALE. he is usually a brilliant red, and his whole body was a pale pale peach color. i have heard of stress stripes, but there were no stripes.
so, i finished cleaning his tank, and the MOMENT i put him back in his big tank, his red color reappeared. like in one second.
it was so weird. he has never done this, and i probably don't need to worry, but i wanted to ask here just in case.
thanks so much.
