yea i did a 50% water change again. fish seem alot happier and water is for the most part clear. i added an air pump to help with oxygen. fish dont seem to care for it too much as they tend to keep their distance, but the fish are for the most part more active than before.

the rainbow cichlid still seems stressed though. his mouth is always gaping and he moves kinda lethargically with his dark colors showing. the usual gold, blue, and red sheens i grew accustomed to seeing are gone.

i heard that marineland sells their formula called "bio-spira" in small packages. my pet stores in the area dont carry it; where can i buy some online so that i can put this mistake behind me? i feel bad that the fish are suffering.

in other news, ive stopped using the amquel; im juts using novaqua for now and ive really laid off the ferts for the plants.
