No change in the clown last night. This morning was a different story. Last night, I took a water sample to the LFS
to see if they got the same results as I was. Everything was the same, except, she showed a 10 on nitrate. So, I came home and did a pwc
and vacuumed sand with hopes that it might help. Amonia tested zero, and like Fluff said, nothing else stands out. Everyone else is fine...who knows? I also purchased some garlic and soaked their food in it to feed this morning. In reading other's posts, I have been feeding everyday, so that was probably the nitrate. Need to look at my tests again and see what I did wrong to get a different reading on that one.
As of 6 am, this morning, I finally found him flip flopping around his cove like he was loosing his mind. He made it out of the cove and into the mainstream of tank life and is drifting about. He swims a little, or tries, but is mainly being tossed around by the powerheads. Doesn't look good.
They were purchsed together, but not a mated pair. They were about the same size, although the one that seems to be dying is lighter in color and just a tad smaller (if you look close). I have (of all things) one blue-green chromis who can be a little aggressive at times, but that's it. Everyone else are simply happy little fish.
Anything else I could or should be doing to save this guy? Are we beyond hope?
