Benjamin has been acting "weird" for a week or two now.
My husband has a feeling its because we have relocated and he has been on a few too many trips.
He's been settled for a week now and I've noticed changes about him.
My main concern is his discolour. He's so pale and I'm so worried. My last friend "Jerry" was with us 3 years, and I don't need to lose another one.
We've moved from a house in the country, where no chlorine is present and now we have chlorine.
I am using a chlorine remover. I also bought him a heater, but it's only a few degrees than his tank already was.
He's been in the "heated" water for a day, and he's acting terrible.
