The male is NOT doing good guys. He's laying on his side at the bottom of the tank, and his breathing is labored. I've tried scooping him out but he darts away with all this energy.
He has eaten in 24 hrs now. The female ate alittle today. I did a 10% again earlier, and cleaned out any detrius etc on the bottom of the QT.
PH is 8.4
Ammonia is 0.5
Nitrates are 10 ppm
temp is 80 F
Should I icebox the male?
I'm absolutely gutted at this, and if there is no way for him to improve.....I dunno.
This is downing me out alot. I feel helpless.
