So my girls and I brought Romeo (shark bait) as hubby calls him, home yesterday. When we put him in his tank, he seemed very happy. Swimming around, exploring through his cave, around the plants.
The only thing that we have not gotten for the tank yet is a heater. Our house is heated with a wood stove and was afraid that his water would get to warm. I tested the water at it is holding stead at 80.
This morning when we got up, he seemed to spend all his time up by the filter close to the light. Wasn't swimming very much, even when I put my finger on the glass, feed him and nothing. Here it is 10 am and still no reaction.
With the light in the tank, do you leave it on all day and night? How warm is to warm? Cooking temp excluded of course :) or is all of this normal and I'm being paranoid? Thank you and we are excited about our new addition.
