So I just got my fishy, Booberry!, but I've noticed that he keeps rubbing up against the thermometer in the tank...he's in love with it. Can some clarify this? I love him lots but he is the most curious fish I've ever had haha :-D

There should be a picture of him on my profile now...for some reason it didn't post earlier. I really hope it's not parasites...he isn't showing signs of being sick. Should I get meds just in case?

I would do a %100 water change first. Keep up with water changes, though. If you see any spots on him, let us know.

That's what I plan to do. Thank you! I'll keep you updated though. I think everything should be fine. I think he just likes to touch it and "snuggle" with it haha

There is a test I do that usually tells me if my fish have parasites or not... It's not guaranteed to work but it can help.

When you next do your waterchange add 1 tsp of aq. salt per gallon. If he's twitching, zooming around the tank like he's agitated, trying to cough something up, or rapidly shaking his head (or body, sometimes), those are good signs he has parasites.

Update us if he does these things, please! The treatment's pretty easy.
