No treatment * Any unusual findings on the fish such as "grains of salt," bloody streaks, frayed fins or fungus? None * Any unusual behavior like staying at the bottom, not eating, etc.? Not eating, bottom sitting, clamping. Last week I moved Ruby and Lyle from the outside deck tank to their winter home in the basement. I had already cycled the tank before moving them to the stock tank. They seemed fine outside but as soon as I put them inside they started bottom sitting and wouldn't eat. After about week they are swimming more but are still not interested in eating. This evening Ruby actually jumped out of the water which really worried me. I checked the water right away but the only thing a little off was the nitrates as you can see above. I decided to do a water change to reduce the nitrates. As you might know my other fish is also not doing well right now. Her illness started after doing a large water change. I am on well water that has a pH neutralizing tank on it. I was a little suspicious of my well water so I decided to check the pH of it as I was doing the water change tonight. The pH of the well water started at 7.2 but decreased to 6.4 when I stopped filling the tank. I am thinking that the problem with my fish might be that when I do a water change I am lowering the pH. Sorry about this long winded but I am really worried about my fish. What do you think I can do for them?
  2. Hi everyone. This is an update from my last post about Pickle, who was gasping for air at the surface of the tank (which is still cycling). Alex advised that I add salt, making a 0.1% solution. I have been doing this for about a week now, and it seemed to help a lot at first. Now, however, it seems like the salt isn't helping as much and Pickle is still gasping. Buttons and Speckle are a little jumpy at times, yawn a lot, and sometimes clamp their fins - though not extremely tightly. I really want this cycle to just establish itself already Does anyone have any advice on how I can make it easier for them? I get the feeling it has to be cycled soon...please help!
