HELP!!!!
i think my fire mouth is dieing
ok well my prims are great
i used some jungle algae relief yesterday so i did a small w/c to night just in case i overdosed (i dont think i did)

http://www.fishforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=19363
he was fine than at around 4 i went up to my room to check on them and he was going crazy
i think he was chasing my baby guppy (his food) and i just put that gravel in he was used to sand
he would suck up the sand when he got food (including the guppy )
im thinking he might of sucked up a stone is that possible ?
he can now hardly keep him self up right

What exactly are the water parameters? Why did you use the Jungle Algae Relief?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

What's the ammonia? Retest with API liquid to confirm validity.

What are the active ingredients of Jungle Algae Relief?

sorry for triple posting but i just remembered that when he was done going crazy he just sat there with his mouth open not gasping just holding his mouth open
he got it closed after about 10- 15 minutes

Did you remove the sand or place the gravel on top of it? You may have affected the biological bed.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
