So, my CBB has taken a turn for the worse. Two days ago he stopped eating and after testing, I realized the Nitrite spiked to 4 or 5 ppm
! I immediately started doing water changes to knock it down but up to today, it rose back up to 2ppm or so.
Since yesterday he spent almost all his time in the PVC
and sways horizontal to vertical like he's disoriented.
Today I took drastic measures and did 3 water changes and got the nitrites to zero.
He's still swimming disoriented. One good thing was that I put him in an isolation container and was able to scrape the last Ich off his fin really quickly. Now he's Ich free at least.
Any ideas in what I can do? I dont want to give up.
