I would add carbon and do some big water changes. And... keep pesticides away from your tank!

just put a bag in. for now, some 50-75% water changes would probably help... definitely won't hurt.

+1 on huge water change and loads of activated charcoal in the filter. Iw ould repalce all the media with pantyhose stockings full of charcoal after a 75% water change. If it were mine.

I put in about 1/2 cup and maybe 15 ammo chips to absorb a little bit of the ammonia (last night) today i found him swimming properly and swim near the surface Thanks for the advice! Really appreciate it.
