  1. No not have metro meds and yes they were in the same tank for 2 weeks. He showed no signs of illness from what i could tell in the first month so i transitiond him to the big tank two weeks before he died. He however sgowed no signs that carlin is showing. He seemed healthy till the last day. Sent from my SGH-T679 using Tapatalk 2

  17. Oh and idk how the fish died he was helaltlhy as far as i know and one day i came home from school and he was dead it was hprrible because hw showed no symptoms Sent from my SGH-T679 using Tapatalk 2 To add to this...the stress of dropping 10x from tap to tank pH is not good for the overall health of your fish. So, I would buffer the system ASAP. How do i buffer the water?Sent from my SGH-T679 using Tapatalk 2
  18. The tank is cycled it is just going through a bump ufortunetly it usualy stays consistantly at zero. I had no idea about the differance in ph i just got the test kit the other day and when i would bring it to the pet store to get tested and the diffetance in ph never showd up it always said both were at 7.
