I know I shouldn't have bought him but I was young and stupid. now I am much older and wiser, but I have this CAE and I cant give him away. I posted a while ago saying he is looking ill he doesn't move much, his fins are gone, and his color is off.
he is about 3" he was in a 10 gallon tank that was densely stocked with 4 black tetras and 5 white cloud minnows, but received good maintenance and levels were stable.
about a month ago I moved him into a recently cycled 36 gallon tank to hopefully make him more comfortable, he is the only fish in the tank. however I haven't seen much improvement. top fin hasn't grown back at all but 2 of the 3 sets of bottom fins appear to have grown back and his tail fin looks better. I check levels regularly and they are normal (for me)
Ammonia = 0
nitrite = 0
pH = 7.8
GH = range of 12 - 18 ppm depending on how long since last water change and how much water was changed. (my tap water is rather hard with pH of 7.8)
I am going to attempt to attach a picture to help with the description of his condition.
looks like picture is a no go. i just keep getting the little red X. I dont know why, I tried both firefox and explorer i turned firewall and internet security off , image is a .JPG and is 355kb 800X532 i tried sizing down to 49kb. with all efforts it still doesnt work.
