    Hi, i recently (about a week ago) got a banded leporinus from my Local fish store. It is about a foot long, and moves around and chases my fish . However, i havent seen it eat since i got it , but he doesnt looked starved. But, yesturday i saw him change colors to a grayish tone, and is still that color even today. Please help hes a p cool fish.
