Hey everyone,
I don\'t really know what\'s wrong with squirt. All he seems to want to do is bask. I\'m not home as much these days because of school, and when I feed him he still gets super excited, and when I leave in the morning he is excited, but when I come home he doesn\'t swim up to the glass like he always does, he just stays on his rock? HE seems fine other than that..any suggestions???

Is his water cold? Should be 75-80 degrees.

if he\'s eating fine, i\'m sure it\'s just a change in habit. my guy was basking a lot, but he wasn\'t eating and was visably sick.

maybe he feels better on the basking rocks..maybe warmer or something..if he\'s eating normally then i wouldn\'t worry a lot:)
