    Re: What are signs of impaction?

    I think that's a wise precaution until you know what's going on.

    Well he's always been in his own tank. The babies are together in a 10, the checkered is alone, and my adult (theme of this thread) is in the 20gal I got when in found him last year. He hasn't had roommates yet.

    I didn't realize you hadn't had him for very long (like, enough winters to have a really good idea of how he does/doesn't go off food). If you've only had him one year then it's definitely possible that he's just sensing the season change and slowing down Just keep a watch on him and make sure he's not losing weight and doesn't seem to have trouble breathing.

    I've had him since 2010 summer. I had to do a mini brumation cause he stopped eating, but it wasnt this early, and i'm also worried because he JUST came off his 3 month summer fast. He's eaten one meals worth of food in 4 months.
