    Jewel is breathing better now. However, I think she may have pop eye. Her eyes are slightly raised, she's a bit lethargic, and her one gill is definitely raised away from her body. I know when they use their gills, they will go away from there body for a moment, but her one gill is always protruding away from her body. I took several pictures of it but when I upload them onto my laptop, those particular pictures aren't detected. I have uploaded many pictures in the past. I am going to check out the beta fish diseases to ee what I can find, and hopefully trest Jewel.

    If it is an "all-in-one" cartridge that is filter floss with carbon inside, just rinse it once a week in tank water or dechlorinated water. Most of the filters use those kind of cartridges. If the cartridge becomes too old or starts to fall apart, put a new cartridge in the filter but keep the old one behind it for a week and monitor for ammonia spikes.

    I'm not sure which message you're talking about. I thought I posted all my questions to Sekera in her private message box.

    Sorry, I just now saw this. I believe my Evolve 4 is cycled now. I had a Nitrite spike, but I am not seeing much of an increase in Nitrates, which I find odd. I am reducing the amount of water changes I am doing again to see what happens.

    Thanks! I do 50% twice a week and 100% once a week, I also skim the top every day for the uneaten crushed pellets. Thank you for the help :)

    Thanks so much! Yes I will be careful! I should run out and get a second net I guess! I didn't even think of that! I did not quarantine my plants for more than a week....I did wash them off so hopefully everything is ok. I will keep a close eye on everyone!

    I have been doing LOTS of water changes...probably about 25% almost every day to keep the ammonia down. I think I over fed the first night or two since he was stressed and didn't eat it. The other levels seem good so far. Nitrates are showing up and growing slowly. Nitrites have been at 0 the past few days. Just that darn Ammonia! I did about a 50% change today so hoping that gets it more in check. I have been testing everyday with my master API kit. I really hope I am doing everything right!

    I will definitely keep his water changes going and using salt, I didn't know about the light part, he has no light in his aquarium but he gets very little from Rainbow's, I'll keep that in mind as well, I plan on making 100% water changes and keep using his medication, and the salt, I also plan on using strong anti-bacterial cleaners, bleach and vinegar just to be triple sure he won't get these again, even if he is showing signs of improvement it is still in my plans to keep things on top with him.

    Thank you for the advice on the lighting, :)

    Anhel I have wonderful news!!! Phoenix is going to be okay!!! :D... he just ate a pellet at 1:59am today as of Thursday, April 04th/2013...

    The little guy is going to make it after all!! I was starting to have my doubts of his survival but it looks like he is going to be okay!! I'm super happy, I thought for sure with him being 11 months he wouldn't live to see his first birthday but by golly he did a complete turn around on me and surprised me!

    I did 2 thumbs up, clapped, cheered and told him he is a VERY good boy!!! he pulled through for me yet again... tough little soldier he is!!! I am so super happy I can just scream with delight!!

    Thank you for your help and support through everything! you have been wonderful!! I don't know whether to cry with joy or cry with relief... and if anyone asks about the velvet... it's an annoying pain in the rump in my honest opinion! and one I NEVER wish to ever encounter or deal with again! lol
