So, I got him flakes that he sorta eats, kinda puts it in his mouth and spits them back up and goes after pieces again? I'm trying to crumble them up as small as possible so I dunno...
But I think he's clamping his fins now... *sigh* always something. He doesnt react to his reflection, though he never really did since i got him, so i dont know if he's just bored or not. Oh, also when i fed him a blood worm today, he attacked the heck out of it. Was kinda cool, i hope thats normal. The Amazon Swords in my tank are getting yellowish spots on them, I dont know if that will help anyone figure out anything or not. I changed the water... probably two days ago...
