Played detective with my 46g. I wasn't liking the behavior of my 2 CAE
's, they weren't hiding or running as usual. My 1st clue something was wrong was big boy laying on the plants near the top, highly unusual. Upon closer inspection he had very rapid gill movement, much more rapid than normal. I immediately tested the water 0 ammonia/nitrites, barely registering nitrates (lots of plants), hmmmm. Oh, could it be the meds I added a few days ago for my female Bettas? Of course it could. So I did an 80% water change a little bit ago & they are now both acting more themselves!! YAY, I love my CAE
's. I think its time for their cucumber dinner.
Oh I also did my weekly water changes on 3 10g, a 5.5g, a 5g, a QT 2.5g housing a female Betta & set up another small QT tank to which I moved a VERY VERY bloated female Betta into. Phew, that's a lot . . . well it looks like a lot, I know its not as much as some fish keepers. Now get those CAE
's their cucumber.
