Omg, I didn't even notice the blue sheen to his eyes! Those are all pics without a flash. Apparently the mini flourescent light in the tank lid is fairly bright, so he is much easier to photograph without a flash vs my 10g divided tank.
He's still zooming around quite happily at the moment. I've elected to feed him small "snacks" so to speak throughout the day instead of one or two meals. So, a pellet here and a pellet there, sort of thing lol. It's gotten him to quickly recognize the small door in the lid, so he has spent an awful lot of time staring at it when one of us goes over to him. ;)
The split in his anal fin seems quite long, but I'm hoping it will heal up with some nice clean water and time.
