My royal gramma was lost all day, so I began searching around for him. I found him in a treasure chest decoration I have.
I poked the end of the algae sponge down near him and he swam around frantically and did a faceplant into the sand.
Then he floated down onto his side. I poked him again and he swam around frantically and found his home again inside the treasure chest.
My water parameters are
Nitrate: between 0-5
I think he might be starving? I researched it and it said they eat meaty food but I've only been feeding the pellets. I blame the LFS
for that info.
I have seen him eat the pellets though, so he might not be starving.
Do you think that is it or could there be something else?
