Figure 8 Puffer on his way out
I have tried to keep the puffer happy. Haven't seen any rise in ammonia.
Yesterday he wouldn't eat. This morning he looks like he might as well be dead. Laying on the ground (not straight up either).
I looked it up and said that puffers may want some salt. So I added salt. But I fear it may be to late. Any ideas what went wrong?
What salt did you use? Use marine salt. What is your SG right now? You have 1 ppm ammonia which can be diluted via water change. But the whole data showed your tank has not finished cycling at all!:question:
I used API Aquarium Salt http://www.petguys.com/-317163011060.html
The tank hasn't cycled. This tank was set up and populated before I even knew about cycling.
He's dead now.. Standing straight up on the bottom. :(
I guess his name (Lucky) doesn't speak the truth at all.
Ten or Eleven days. He was eating fine up to yesterday.
I'm guessing SG is salt something.
Fish is dead.
How do I measure SG? I haven't seen any kits for that.
