Hey guys, I got my brother a CT, Redbeard and he came home a little bloated but still active.
I fasted him, then this morning he looked better, though still a little shy, so I fed him one of the smallest pellets I could find in my bottle.
He's bloated AGAIN and now he's been moved to a tea-spa 0.5 gal filled only a 1/4 of the way up. He's sitting at the surface, not at the bottom, he's tilted a little to his left, but he's not moving :/ He's not dead because he's breathing slowly but I'm a little worried about him.
I draped a cloth over half of the tank to make it into a "cave" so he can hide behind the cloth, but he seems to prefer it out in the open. It's night time here now, so maybe he's just sleeping? I know when Lelouch sleeps, he looks like a total zombie, so maybe Redbeard is the same?
My LPS doesn't sell daphnia and my brother and I hate peas so we have none at home. I'll see if I can find the smallest-size bag/box/can of peas tomorrow at the store, but I'm open to other suggestions on how to help him get better.
