So I seem to be having a bit of difficulty with Hannibal again...
He still refuses pellets. I've tried a few brands and different methods of getting him to eat them. Still nothing. So I thought maybe he'd eat flakes..
No such luck. He wont eat those either. Chomps them up and spits them out. Just like his pellets.
This leaves him on his freeze-dried blood worms. He's done ok on them. Even put weight on. No bloating and no constipation.
Now.. He gets stress stripes if his filter is off/gone. We had it out for a few days while I was hunting down new cartridges for it. He was very stressed, but the filter being gone allowed him a bubble nest. I'm going to try to baffle his filter so he can bubble nest all he wants but not stress over his filter.
I'm having trouble with his light now. He has one of the 3.5 gal tanks from PetSmart that has a 4 color 12 setting LED lighting system. He gets angry and gets stress stripes if his light is not set to the "normal" (1st) setting. This makes his tank look like moonlight is hitting it. Now, if I turn this off at night, I find him stressed the next morning and he wont eat. If I leave it on, however, he goes into his decoration to sleep and greets me in the morning. Should I worry over the light?
