Most everything in the tank looks pretty safe (pvc
bits, powerhead, HOB
filter) but I suppose it's always possible that he hurt himself somehow. I don't think so though. His other tankmates are a potters angel and 2 percula clowns.
We have been using Amquel Plus half dose between water changes and it worked great with the ammonia but it just isn't cutting it with the nitrites, even full dose.
is currently at 8.2 (we're using a PH
monitor) however over the weekend there was a problem with the buffers we're using (Marine Buffer by Seachem) and the PH
shot up to 8.6 - not good obviously.
On top of which I forgot to turn the HOB
filter back on after my water change last night so the only flow in there was the powerhead.
At this point it doesn't look good. I've heard that bringing a fish out of hypo needs to be done slowly, over the course of a few days and it doesn't look like that's going to be an option. If we take him out of hypo too fast it's just going to stress him out even more won't it? And if we wait the week or so to bring him out properly then it may be too late to do anything about the infection - assuming that's the problem of course.
