I understand melosu, and I appreciate your help...I really do. I have already done a small water change, and the damsel is doing well. My Nitrates are a little high at the moment, but other than that everything is fine. I had purchased the "live" sand that is supposed to help out with the cycling, so things are progressing quicker in the tank...which is godd for the damsels sake. I do feel bad for the little guy, but after advice from the LFS
figured it was the best way to cycle. I hope this doesn't discourage anyone form offering advice in the future.
