What are the water parameters right now?
What test kit was used?
How did your water parameters start going wacky?
Tank mates?
How often do you feed and with what?
How long has the tank been established?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!

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.
