Inigo doesn't want lady friends, he wants revenge on the six-fingered man!

She seems to be doing better! swimming a lot more, not hanging out on the substrate as much. I'm wondering if she was just in shock from the transition.

HOORAY!!! It's very possible! Moving a fish is always upsetting to them. Maybe she is/was pregnant and adjusting is taking her a bit more time because of it. Sounds like you're on the right track, though. Just keep on keeping on, dim lights, calm room. . . hopefully she'll be back on top in no time :)

How's she doing today, Bek? And how is your fuzzyface angel? (sorry if I'm on the wrong thread for that fish!)

She's still swimming, and still resting on the bottom once in awhile. I'm still keeping an eye on her.
Fuzzy face looks really good, and unfuzzy, and i'm really tempted to put him back in the 29 early, since his hospital tank is so cold.

*sigh* Yeah. . . I mean, if that tank is in the 65 degreeish range too, you might have to! I don't really KNOW what the best option is, but I imagine that being kept too cold will cause as much if not more harm than the fuzzy lip. . . depending on what it IS, kwim? I just don't KNOW! We live fairly near to each-other (I'm in MD) so I know - the last couple of days the temperature outside just D R O P P E D. Autumn is HERE! I've been so super happy about it, but now, I'm praying for a few warm days to get you through until you can get a heater (or two)

Good luck, lady!
