he didnt eat today either. its weird, i put some food in and he looked extremely interested and he swam up to it and then he looked at it and swam away. i think i'm just paranoid because my other one never ate but brine shrimp and he died :(
i just want to make sure these guys are ok.
its funny the one with no eyes, swims a lot, basks with his little legs out and eats a good amount. you figure with no eyes he would have the problems

::my baby res suddenly stopped eating. he hasnt eaten in 3 days. before he would start eating immediately when i would put him in the feeding tank and he would eat a lot, but now hes not interested at all in any food. i tried brine shrimp too. he swims right by it. hes active and i think he basks when i'm not home. hes really skittish and always tries to hide. is he just too nervous to eat in front of me? is he sick of the pellets that he seemed to like before?

::they have a good setup, uvb light, basking area, plants to hide in, tank at about 76 and sometimes higher. should i heat the tank up? will this help his appetite? is he just full?
