  1. I honesty don't think it's a water quality issue since I have such a low stocking and frequent large water changes. My other fish is just fine perfectly healthy. I do my water changes like I do because personally I just love a super clean crystal clear tank. I'm not sure how to upload pictures/videos to here? It's just so strange Bert was fine Thursday and Friday morning he was acting like this. So out of the blue. Nothing has changed. The only thing I can think of is the tube I use for water changes, I never really clean it. But I bleached it well today and I will on a regular basis. I just don't know how to treat Bert. I'm thinking internal. Something from the hose maybe?

  3. I need help, I've been trying to figure out what's wrong with my poor Ryukin Bert, he was fine Thursday night, Friday morning he was not himself, he's always very active always greets me when I walk anywhere near the tank and he didn't swim up didn't acknowledge, was moving slow, looked spaced out, and was floating aimlessly. He's just declined everyday since. Currently I have moved both fish over to qt, I tore down my tank, bleached everything, I have no idea what's wrong with him. Physically he looks fine. Idk if it's from the hose I do water changes with I've never ran bleach thru it since I've had it about 6-8 months now. I bleached it today and I will bleach often after use. Any ideas on what could be wrong or how to treat? I have metro, I ordered kanaplex just in case. I don't want to lose my baby. I just don't know how to help him. Thank you in advance.
