Hey all. I haven't been on the site for a few years now, I used to have a couple nice tanks and spent years maintaining them - I'm not new to the hobby in any way.

For 3 years they ignored them.

A few weeks ago, they started hanging...

3 years ago (or so) I bought a pair of BTA's for a 75G with PC lighting.

Yeah, bad idea. One died after a month. The other one shrivelled up to the point it had no tentacles, and was all...

You'll hate that glass top. I tried one after I lost my 2nd fish from excessive jumping.

It kills gas exchange, and moisture /salt will build up on it, and pretty soon you won't be able to see...

I've got lots of them, little guys, no bigger than a dime from tip to tip.

Also - the swelling is perfectly symmetrical from a front view. She (it?) is eating fine, and out and about, not at all shy for a PJ Cardinal.

Seriously sick, or pregnant?

Noticed tonight my PJ cardinal is *extremely* swollen up.

This fish is a little beat up - it got caught in an overflow, and ended up going down to the sump, one of it's fins was sheared off...

RO membrane worn out?

I noticed this morning that even though I'm not using any water from my RO/DI, that the RO waste line is putting out non-stop water to the drain.

I'm guessing this means the membrane is worn out...

Yeah, one thing I don't have (anymore) is a fuge. I miss it - my fuge used to be covered with macro, full of all kinds of 'pods, and none in the main (this was before I moved up to a 180 from a 75)....

Formula 2 is exactly what I tried (mashed up and thawed). No interest in that, or Nori.
