Keep the water squeaky clean in the meantime (I'm sure you already know that tho). Good luck and keep us posted.
Romad, let me ask you this. I believe I keep my tank always clean. The HIH developed while I attempted putting my female Opaline Gourami in with my single GBR. She was such a stressor, as everytime she saw him, she chased him into hiding. So, I removed her, and figured that is what caused it. Aquaadvisor says because I only have one fish in a 30 gal tank, I should do a weekly wc of 4%. So, because I do buy this water (soft) I've been doing only about 3-5 gallons, one week more, one week less. I have lots of plants, and I always have 0 of everything (nitrates etc). Is it possible I'm not doing big enough water changes and this is a water quality issue?
