I can most certainly look, thank you again for the advice. I have tubifex worms in there right now, since they stick to the wall and dont float below the grate of the breeder box. If anything her color has come back from what she looked like this morning.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I hope she makes it. And when you have a chance we would love to see pics of your tank. ; )

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Ugh well shes still aluve this am but her left eye looks... swollen and dislodged somewhat. Like uglier than pop eye pictures ive seen. And her spine doesnt even seem to look proper it looks like shes folding up.. im thinking of maybe just putting her out of her misery at this point. Her top fin is clamped as well. Everyone else in the tank seems fine and i even captured 7 babies and transferred them to a fry tank who are all fine... ideas?

gosh,that's not sounding great,
euthanisation sounds like the best thing,do you know about clove oil and vodka ?

I do not. I dont have any alcohol in my house at all though because I have a toddler... an adventurous toddler that can open things. I was thinking about getting her in another tank and trying a salt bath but i have yet to make it to petsmart
