PS- The petsmart I bought him from didn't give me hardly any info...when asked if I needed a heater, etc- they said no. I am purchasing a heater, and a regular filter this week, as well as a testing kit- Forgot the test kit at the store. Doing the best I can at the moment..But I'm afraid because his color is a little dull that he might be sick? though he is acting totally normal...Thank you for any help!!
This is my 2.5 year old daughters fish- She loves him so much- So I am trying very hard to keep him healthy and happy for her.
