Try sponge filter. It can be the best option for quarantine and hospital tanks.

The "fish guy" I was referring to is a privately owned fish store here. It's by far, the best in town, the majority of it is saltwater fish. I think he knows what he's talking about...as far as Petsmart or Petland. I agree!!! I dont go to them about fish...just to get the rock because its cheaper there.

The use of limestones will raise the pH.

I think my pictures were too big because I followed those instructions. They may be limestone....not sure. I am at work now...and the pics are at home. But, the fish was dead this morning when I checked him :(
He was still bent towards one side..so there was something wrong with him internally I think.
I appreciate your help!
