is this fahaka healthy?

Post by NJD » Thu Jul 05, 2018 10:57 am

Hi all,

My tank is all set up!!

I went to the LFS to look at the fahaka. He looks like he had little colour and was just sat on the bottom of the tank not looking overly happy.

I asked to see him feeding, and the person in the store said he had just eaten and pointed out, (as you can see in the pic) that he is surrounded by bloodworms.

She said he was very active this morning but having just eaten he's a bit more still.

Is this normal? does this look like a good fahaka? I'm concerned that he's a bit colourless and wasn't moving.

They will hold him for me until sunday. They are hard to come by so my only other option is to order online. If i order on line i take what I'm given and may not be any better.

Thanks

Ciao ho un problema col mio fahaka
Non mangia da 2 settimane e ha un comportamento strano
Non si muove e ogni tanto nuota in cerchio e si gonfia
Help me please
