COMMENTS
The Diophantine equation 10*x^2 + k = y^2, for |k| < 10, has integer solutions with the following k values:
k = 1, the nonnegative x values are in A084070;
k = -1, " A097315;
k = 4, " 2*A084070;
k = -4, " 2*A097315;
k = 6, " this sequence;
k = -6, " A221875;
k = 9, " A075836;
k = -9, " A052454.
a(n+1)/a(n) tends alternately to (sqrt(2)+sqrt(5))^2/3 and (2*sqrt(2)+sqrt(5))^2/3; a(n+2)/a(n) tends to A176398^2.

FORMULA
G.f.: x*(1+x)*(1+4*x+x^2)/((1-6*x-x^2)*(1+6*x-x^2)).
a(n) = ((-5*(-1)^n+2*t)*(3+t)^(2*floor(n/2)) - (5*(-1)^n+2*t)*(3-t)^(2*floor(n/2)))/10, where t=sqrt(10).
a(n) = 2*A129556(n) + 1.
a(n)*a(n-3) - a(n-1)*a(n-2) = -36 + 12(-1)^n.
