"I got my raph about 9 months ago from a friend who had him for about 2 years. When my friend had him he never ever saw him, because he stayed hidden inside his hollow log the entire time he had him. when he gave him to me and I put him in my 50 gallon tank, we literally had to break the log to get him out. In my tank he lived happily in a hole he had dug behind some large rocks. Strange thing though is that NOBODY has ever seen him eat, EVER. Everytime i feed my fish he never moved, even with the food sinking and landing on his body. At night sometimes i would hear rocks hitting the glass as if he was digging his hole deeper but thats about it. Nobody has ever witnessed him eat, not even at night..... Unfortunately he died last night for some reason and I have no idea what caused it. 2 days ago I noticed him on the wall of the tank which was rare and he was still breathing. Last night however, I did a head count (as i always do to make sure my ghost fish didn't eat any of the smaller fish) and I noticed my Raph upside down floating at the top of the tank. For a little while i could still see him breathing, but eventually his breathing stopped. The other fish are doing fine so i am left mind boggled as to why my Raph suddenly died. "
