The scooter didn't eat at all yesterday and was hiding under the sand all day until I went to bed. He's out and about today so far but he doesn't seem himself. I'm gonna feed them in a little bit and I hope he eats today........

It's been a few days and the scooter still isn't right. He did eat a couple pieces of bloodworms last night but that's it. He's been hiding under the sand pretty much 80% of the day. He's not pecking at the rocks either so I'm not sure if he's hungry or just going through a faze.

Water checks out ok, 0 amm, 0 trites and 10 nitrates. I'll be doing a pwc sometime today most likely, just was worried about stressing the scooter cause something is wrong with him.

Any ideas guys?

Really weird, I would do a water change, it won't stess him out if the temp and salinity is matched well enough.

I've done 2 water changes in the last few days and the scooter is still not right. I saw him eat maybe 3 pieces of brine yesterday and thats it. He isn't hiding under the sand as much but something is still wrong it seems.

Any suggestions? He's not really listless or swimming funny or anything like that he just isn't eating and acting odd.
