Maybe I'm just being paranoid but for the past week he's been acting funny. I thought at first he was just trying to be cute but now I'm not so sure. When I approach the tank he swims to the front and "sits" on the bottom, curving his tail sideways and facing upwards, kind of like the way a dog sits. He wiggles around like that and plays with me but tends to stay on the bottom, sometimes almost lying down sideways. He is able to swim to the top for feeding and seems to swim normally except for this weird behaviour. I am wondering if he could have swim bladder disease or be constipated. I think I'm going to feed only peas for two days and see if it helps. His tail is looking ragged again from him dragging it around on the bottom all the time. I just can't tell if he's doing this to get attention or something is really wrong.
