Thank you everyone!!! I flipped him over last night, only to find that he was not upside down so i flipped him back over. This morning he looked dead to me. all the little finger things where falling down or had shrunk in.
So, (Did I read up on the little guy before I bought him? oh nooo) I put him in a plastic bag with tank water. Did an emergacy race to the fish store. The fish guy that knows me very very very well now, after 2 yrs of dealing with me, asked me what happened?? So...I told him I think hes dieing. He says well if he wasnt, he might be now. He took him and looked him over and proceeded to tell me all the stuff I needed to know before I bought him. It has a foot!! that was neat.
For now, he looks fine, his foot is going back in the hole in the rock and my water tested fine.
I thought I had this fish keeping down pat now. 2 yrs experience.
thanks again all.
