Use some filter material out of your main tank to help it along quicker

In the 10g ???

In a plastic pot he'll die from ammonia poisoning. You're better to cycle a new tank with him inside than keep him in a little pot without filtration.

That's what I was thinking. I did a 90% water change in his 1.5 gal bowl he was in and added some of the 30 gal's water to the new five gal I bought. It's just going to be my hospital tank. The plan is to try him a again in the 30 gal after he is recovered. He did fine in the bowl over night. In about two hours my bf will put him in the five gal. It will have been running for 18 hours.

My bf is going to add some filter stuff from the 30g to the 5, and I'm taking a fake plant and some gravel too.

Thank you for the advice! Blaze, the guppy, pooped a ton and ate well the am and last night. I treated his bowl with a few drops of malakit too.

Blaze died in his new home last night. we will continue to run this tank and cycle it for a hospital tank.

Rip poor beautiful blaze. Sorry I wasn't more prepared for you.

you can get even a 2.5 gallon if he is going to be ALONE. and i would suggest some nutrafin biological cycle, api quick start, or the fluval biological enhancer to speed up the cycle and pretty much add fish immediately.

Haha, I didn't even name him until he got sick. Then I got attached.
