Is the sick fish still eating anything?

Yeah slightly. I fed, frozen Brine tonight with vitamins already mixed in, I could not find the vitamins you had mentioned. He seemd to eat it for about 4 or 5 seconds. Then he would spit it back out and try another brine, then spit it out. Then it ooks like he just likes to swim around with the other fish that are eating. Then he goes back to hanging out in the plants nibbling here or there. Maybe he is a vegetarian.

I had a little extra time last night so I re aquascaped the tank to provide higher level decor as well as a few caves and an open area behind the rocks for lit seclusion. The fish does not appear significantly better, however he was swiming around a little yesterday and I think I saw him eat a little without spitting it back out. However he did not eat when I fed this afternoon and he is back to just hanging out in one area.

Here is the new layout:

I'm sorry he's still not doing well. The new layout looks great, very nice looking tank. I hope your fish pulls through.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Yes, I second all of what kymmie says. I like the aquascape, nice work.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thank you all for the comments. Any sugestions for improvement are welcome.

I agree the one that isn't sick is an extremely interesting fish, I can easily spend 10min just watching it. So I really hope the other is able to pull through.

Im really worried though as I am going to be out of town next week begining this friday and if the little guy isn't doing better and dies while I'm out of town I do not want that to devastate the system. Any thoughts?

I think it is too late to set up a hospital tank, I suppose I could set one up and just pull everything from the rubermaid I have my guppies in and put it all in the new tank(I cracked the real tank). Even then I'm worried it wouldnt be enough time to get it settled.

I think it would be better to move him to another tank just incase he does not make it unless your going to have someone that is going to be checking on them while your gone that would be willing to remove him if he does die.

Do you think if I ran to Walmart tomorrow, got a 10g, moved all the substrate, filter, and some plants to it, it would be safe to inhabit immediately? Also if I did this, I don't think there is a auto feeder that can feed small enough amounts as to feed one fish, anyone have an oppinion on those blocks you drop in the water and are supposed to feed your fish for a week or something along those lines.
