The store told me they feed the frozen enriched mysis shrimp just like the one i bought from them. And i saw him feed the clown gobies and they all ate. I don't have any of that garlic stuff.. so i'll take any offerings lol. Thanks cmor.
I used the drip acclimation, slowly, and did it for one hour. He didn't seem stressed out during the acclimation or anything.. And i also don't know how long he's been there.. but he looked to be the best one out of all the others.. that's why i took him. Yeah.. i hope he makes it too.. but i don't think he's long for this world.. unfortunately. I'll try that garlic stuff tomorrow and see if he eats.. hoping he does.
Oh and also.. just to make sure it wasn't my water, which it isn't.. i did a full test.
Ammonia : 0ppm
Nitrite : 0ppm
Nitrate : 0-5ppm
Phosphate : 0ppm
Salinity : 1.023
pH : 7.9
The salinity is a little lower than i want it to be.. but that's definitely not what's causing the problem. 1.023 is low.. but it isn't really THAT low. Also, i don't know why, but even on my last tank, my pH was this number. For some reason.. my pH has never been in the 8-8.4 range. Don't know why. I have my return pointing directly at the surface plus a powerhead pointing at the surface so there's no way i don't have sufficient surface agitation. Maybe it's the salt i use? I used Oceanic on my last tank and my pH on that tank was 7.8 or 7.9.
Anyways.. my snails and hermits are all doing fine and eating whatever they can.. including the mysis i just fed. Hermits eat funny lol. So i really don't think it's my water. I just wish my pH was where it is supposed to be. It's been at 7.9 ever since the end of my cycle and it hasn't moved at all. Same color everytime i test. So yeah.. i think the fish is just sick or something. :/
