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?
