    miami will go halfway into his waterchanging cup, the freak and back out.
    im trying to use the current of the water into the cup to get him in, but he fights and wins each time. im coming really close.
    should i keep trying or do something else? suggestions?

    Hey Myates, quick question. First Edward is doing much much better and eating. Now the water is really cloudy. He has been in this new 5 gal tank for about two weeks. I have done several 50% water changes. I keep reading about "Cycling". Unfortunately, I didn't know much about this when I set him up. Will he be okay while this is happening, and I do not have a water tester. I will pick one up this week, but for now will doing another 50% change help? Thank you:)

    Hi! I wanted to let you know I posted news about Edward in Emergency forum. I'm still not convinced he's okay but for now better. I bought a heater, did a couple of water changes and left him alone. Today he is "trying" to swim and move around more. He was interacting with me a little. He seems bogged down or something hard to explain. Any ideas I might try or just leave him. He's still not eating. He tried and spit it out. Thanks!

    not going to say false alarm just yet, but i think the change of 73^ to 80^ sent him into shock. He seems better and swimming around a little bit, but still trying to cath his breathe. ill let you know if anything else happens. when i got the new heater i took him out and when it got to 80 i floated him for an hour and put him back in. do you think he needed more time?
