Hi Guys: Recently I have been stupidly fooling with my fish tank in an attempt to clear up foggy water. I realize now it was most probably the nitrogen cycle, as th tank was newly set up. So after letting the tank alone for a month or two, I noticed it was starting to get foggy. It was then that in decided to add water clarified. I soon after noticed that my one black moore who has swim bladder problems was floating on his side, and the other was slow. I immediately got them out of the problematic tank and into a smaller one with fresh water. They eventually recovered, I replaced the water and filter media and they seem to be doing fine now. One of them is seeming to have some trouble ascending through the water (not the one with the bad swim bladder). Should I be worried? The ammonia is <0.02 ppm, and pH is a little low. Their feces is black. I have also started feeding them sinking granules as it supposed to help with air gulping. The tank is 10 gallons. I love these fish, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
