So shortly after getting the advice on my royals condition, I wanted to update you on his progress. He's back to his normal coloring, highly enjoying the cucumber. He doesn't even run away when my hand goes in the tank anymore also he's not staying behind the filter as much either. I dunno what happened to make him turn around but he looks so much better and actually is getting a belly on him! I am so happy, thank you guys so much.

Congrats, NS. When Royals get settled in and are well-fed, they are very bold. I have a 16-inch long adult Royal who's been with me more than 15 years, and is the 'king' of his tank.
Have you tried fresh Romaine lettuce or leaf spinach with him yet? The cellulose fiber in the leafy vegs is good for him. Also, I suppose you have driftwood in his tank? Royals need to rasp on and eat driftwood to help with their digestion.

Well perhaps I spoke too soon he still is very blotchy, but he's eating well and I moved the snails to the otherside of the tank (I hope they can deal with the dino's better than he can) hoping to let him chill out for a while. I will definately try some leafy stuff and see if he likes it anything else he might like? I will also try to get a pic as soon as he lets me. I'm always open for advice and tips, anything is greatly appreciated.
