Freed's alright. For now it looks like whatever it is (if anything) has stopped getting worse and might be improving a little. He's being his usual old self, refusing to eat pellets that hit the gravel, so now all those are going to be converted to snail doo. 9_9 For some reason he only eats the floaters.
Nice name, it suits him! :) Yeah, sometimes it takes a while for them to start eating after you just get them. Freed didn't eat for two or three days, but since then whenever I move him or clean his water he's ready to eat right after. I'm sure he'll realize the pellets are tasty food soon!
