    The album function is giving me a hard time. In the album function though, I put a link in the description.

    Okay. Sounds good. Thanks!
    By the way, I don't know if I'm just a paranoid mother to my fish, but I'm pretty sure he's recovered from a fin rot bout he had a while back, but now I don't know if he has popeye. I'll include some pictures, and I'm sorry that they're not very good, but could you take a look please?

    The most recent ones are the first eight, and then the ones below are from when he had fin rot.

    It can take a week to 10 days for them to calm down and adjust....

    I see. Even when he was still in the small tank, he did a lot of swimming, so now that he's in the bigger one, I can't decide whether it's his personal normal behaviour or not. His fins also seem great and really nice. They're almost always fanned out now and I feel like his color has gotten much more vibrant. I think he's freaking out less and he still seems ecstatic at feeding time. I guess I have to give it a few more days?

    Sometimes it can take them some time to adjust to the space-especially the water movement since the long fin males have spent nearly all their life in a small container of water without water movement.
    Sometimes the space and water movement can be the cause of tattered fins as well.
    By understanding the species habits can help you understand normal behaviors-The males are surface dwellers that build a nest at the surface-stake territory and wait on a female to pass by to reproduce-this tells us normal behavior for a male will be a fish that stay in one area at the surface and generally doesn't swim around a lot.

    Still doing an awful lot of swimming though. I guess that's a good thing considering thw wide amount of space?

    Alright. I just changed some of the water today and yes, I do have the nitrogen cycle going. He's swimming around, but he doesn't look as freaked out as he was before.
