He wont go in the bucket he hides on the bottom of the tank where i cant get him hes trying to run away i didnt mean to freak him out but the bucket is like half the size of his tank can i leave it in there and hope he goes in or how do i help him i dont want him to get sick from this algae and yuckyness
I heartily second Micho. The only time my boys get removed is if they're being treated for something in the hospital tank, which has happened once. Otherwise they stay in. Even during cleanings. I just use the gravel vacuum.
