    Can we get some more information? How long have you had it? What size tank do you have? Parameters? Equipment? Stock list?

    My fox face goes almost white about an hour before my lights are set to go off. After they go off he turns into a freaking cheetah lol

    The only thing I know of that they carry is black spot disease and it's pretty harmless and needs a certain type of snail to complete its life cycle. Is it eating well?
