One of my roommates friends decided to get a fish with her roommate... well being the imature college students they are (I probably shouldn't say that since I am a college student) they decided they didn't want them anymore. The girl who I got mine from decided to just give it to me... didn't want money or anything...
The tank was disgusting. The fish was basically staying in one spot and just chilling there. I got it at almost midnight and had to wait until after my morning classes to clean the tank. The water is still a little cloudy even after a 100% water change (I didn't get a chance to really wash the decor and pebbles) but the fish is like a new fish. He is swimming all over the place and is really active.
His color seems dull and off which will hopefully will change in the next couple of weeks. I also got him in a .5 gallon tank. I can't wait to go to the store and buy a bigger tank. And also some plants and something to hide behind. Right now there is a Budda and thats it... not much to hide behind..
He isn't eating the pellets/flakes or bloodworms.. he did go for the crumb I put in there just to see if he liked it.. any suggestions? I've only had him for about 48 hours so maybe its just being in a new place?
