Hey Jaysee, you've been of great help, me and my friend really appreciate it!
I've told him to slowly raise the temperature, and he is currently at 82F/28C, up several degrees from its previous 25-26C.
I've told him to use some of that eSHa EXIT product too, to which he has done, he said the fish started to swim a little erratically after about 20 minutes or so, but I told him that might be because of the ingredients working more so than it harming the fish, he's also taken the Carbon out of his Filter too and turned all his aeration up to the maximum.
- How long do you think I should tell him to keep the temperature up for? And at what temperature specifically?
86F/30C for 1-2 weeks?
(Not sure if I mentioned this before, but the eSHa EXIT product is biodegradable and it also states water changes aren't needed after the full treatment, apart from normal weekly water changes).
