the fish were at the LFS
for over two weeks and they were fine there. There is no fish store around here that can test for the water. I made three measurements, one with my un-used ro
saltwater, one with my tank water, and also a test using my friends test kit to compare. It was hard to tell but it seemed that I had a slight ammonia spike, but .25 ppm
maximum. Should this make the fish behave like this? Will they survive these levels?
Just some other observations of their behavior: The fish were fine yesterday and have seemed to atleast have started the pairing process. They don't seem to be deathly ill but only slightly stressed. They sometimes perc up (no pun intended) and swim around for a moment or two before returning to the bottom (the larger one does this more often that the small one). they also seldom leave eachothers side. Is it possible that this is part of the pairing process?
