Yeah, no offense, but I am rather sick of it too. I purchased a magazine yesterday and it had a section on proper care for Nemo fish.

ugh!

Something no one touched on yet is the o2 level, If the o2 level is low most fish will get to acting funny. Just my 2 cents .

thanks guys! now what about Dory fishes? lol jk.

anyways my guy still doesn't seem to be eating so it seems like his future is going to be the same as his friend..i just hope not. I think stress prolly had a big thing to do with this situation and from now on will definetly check them out more carefully.

Will let you know what happens, thx...

oh and how would you measure the o2? I have 4 other fish in there and they all seem to be doing fine...

yea all the levels were pretty much all the way down...and ph was perfect.

I'm thinking it has a couple of things to do with stress plus the chromises picking on them.

if you recently purchased the clown, keep in mind that it is hurricane season and many of the tropical fish "farms" in fllorida have had to shut down (ex ORA) and ship out all their fish. you may have ended up with a "rescue" fish, which was probably not ready to be sold and or was extremly stressed.

I was really worried about my first fish, a large, wild caught, Percula Clown. I paid $25.00 for the guy and for the first 4-5 days he just sat in the same place, breathing heavy and not eating or moving much, and, almost overnight what looked like a lateral line infection popped up.

I thought about trying tp take him back or possibly even flushing him but all of a sudden he got better. His side cleared up and he was all over the tank, swimming around, eating like a pig and extremely active. So, basically, give it a little time.

One other thing, PetCo fish are crap, pure crap. Every SW fish I have bought from PetCo has died with the exception of two Domino Damsels. A great percentage of the freshwater fish I have bought from PetCo have also died. No, I am not doing anything wrong, all my other fish stay alive, healthy, and active. I buy some dry goods such as food from PetCo, but not fish.

flushing?

perhaps you were using a figure of speech, but please don't ever flush fish. They slowly die a miserable death in a sewer tank. You can quickly cut their heads off instead. Some people recommend freezing them.

Flushing

I would have froze him first.
