He is beautiful! I'd love for your grandma to upgrade his tank just a little bit :) Even an unfiltered 10gallon tank with the same maintenance routine she is doing now would be great improvement and give the fish so much room to swim around while keeping the water quality much better. I think if she was my grandma, I'd buy her a plain 10g tank like that :3

He is so gorgeous, what a cute face! :heart :heart

thats the one, its on the tip of my tongue, yes he has it, he wont give up. it stops when he concentrates something like electric or pluming or fixing a light bulb but if his just sitting there it goes wild.

Yes, my mates father had it....he seemed to suffer more from these symptoms when he was relaxing; it was very sad to watch, but like your Grandad, he was still very proud and independent!!

What a beautiful fish. I think you should buy a bigger tank for your Grandma. Mothers day is just around the corner. I know she's your Grandma............but hey..........she has to accept a gift. :) I bet her fish would love something a little bit bigger then what you have.

Well I understand that she wouldn't want to give him up. It's her fish after all :)
