So these past few days Maxwell has been acting weird. It seemed to happen over night.
He just sits all droopy like staring at the heater or lays down on his side in his jar cave.
His fins are kinda clamped too and are not ripped but stringy looking, like someone who has not washed their hair for a long time.
He still has his color. But when I fed him this morning he waited for a long time before slowly moving towards the food. He also takes a long time to react when he sees me looking at him near the tank.
I just recently added a heater. Otherwise that is the only thing different in his tank.
I have had him for almost 3 weeks now. The lady I adopted him from said he was very young. And until him acting like this he has been the picture of health and very active.
Note: The heater is a Marineland 10 watt. It is preset to 78 degrees and cannot be changed.
