So my 3 pearls are doing great! Healthy, swimming, all that jazz. But one of the females is...spazzing, to put it frankly. She keeps darting along the back wall of the tank ridiculously fast. I shined a light on her to check for velvet, but it didn't look like anything...

The other two seem fine. The main issue is that I'm going to be gone until Monday, so I may not have a chance to care for them. Any help you can give me ASAP is great!

38g tank
80* C
Moderately (and artificially) planted
3 pearl gourami
Penguin 350 Biowheel Filter
200W heater

Well, I haven't noticed any more spazzing, but they are super shy (like when I first got them), and look just a touch emaciated. I'll probably do a 50% water change tomorrow. I also switched them to the same food my bettas eat, to see if I can work on their weight. I'll also bring the temperature down a tad. What's the lowest it can safely go? 76* F?

(And yes, all my measures are in fahrenheit (stupid imperial system)

If I have to. I really, really hate medicating my tank. I do have Prazi, but I'll keep my eye on them for now, and if I notice any more weird behavior I'll medicate. Thanks!
