Help! I fear for my tiger barbs life!!!
I just did a 30% water change this water. Half the water i added had been treated and sat for a day, the other half treated and sat for several hours.
I think the second set I added may have been a little warm, but had no change of temp on my thermometer. For a while after initially conducting the change my Tiger barbs have been swimming, head at a downward angle right next the intake tube of my penguin 150 filter. All six were there for a while, I read that they may do that if there is some ammonia in the water so I freaked and added some more Prime. After 5-10minutes the rest of my barbs went back to exploring the tank, but one is still there. He'll hang out by it for a minute and then go swim around, then hang out there again. I don't have a test kit, I live next to a Petsmart so i've been having my water tested there.
My sciatic is currently exploding in pain, so i just took a muscle relaxer. In a few hours I'll be able to go to Petsmart and have my water tested and I'll be picking up my own test kit. PLEASE HELP! I don't want to lose my Tiger Barb!
