Today's update: Got outta bed, and he was NOT on the floor of his tank! I threw some pellets in and he jumped! His fins are almost completely unclamped, and he is very hyper and happy. He seems to love the new tank, even though it is very tiny. Despite this I do plan on working him into something a touch bigger so I can fit some plants and a cave in, but for now he is enjoying a tank with nothing but a tiny plant and a couple food pellets.
On top of that, Macchiato is enjoying the five gallon sooo much. He was in the teeny tiny tank, and was happy in it (bubble nests galore!), so this is his first time in anything larger than a 1.5 gallon. I never noticed how big he's gotten, or how long his fins have grown, but he needed a larger tank. He is MASSIVE! He seems to like all the room (and new hiding spots) and greeted me with a bubble nest this morning! So win all around for my fishies!
