I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

What are your other fish? What ornaments are you using? Water parameters?

I'd suggest buying your own test kit, API liquid test kit. Test your ammonia, nitrites, nitrates and pH again. The fish is probably reacting to something in the water. Check your nitrates regularly. It should not exceed 40 ppm which can harm your fish.

How have you been dosing PraziPro?
