Just wondering.
Everyone has their own opinion. Just following what my lfs told me to do, he has been breathing fast for the last week and 2 days with spots. It seems to have helped him

I hope he is doing better. That`s a plus. The only purpose for FW dips is to get rid of ich and it really does not do a good job. It does not seem to be the problem though. I still think you are doing too much stress but good luck with your fish anyway.

Thanks for all the help everyone, my perc clown is alot better. Not breathing any faster than 'she' should and her and the small o clown are even mating today. The o clown keeps having mini strokes then following the per c and i heard thats a mating sign.

But i think im going to lose my royal gramma, its breathing fast and not coming out of a huge piece of rock. I can only see its face, no telling if the spots have taken over its little body
