Hi there, Sorry to introduce myself so abruptly, but I'm scared for my new ranchu Hiro. I received him from Dandy Oranda on August 28 and I thought he was just recovering from shipment, but he is still sluggish. He ate a little gel food on the first day, but hasn't touched anything since. He mostly just sits on the bottom of the hospital tub and when he does swim, it's with a rocky lopsided motion. I've tried to give him peas, but he won't eat them. I noticed he had clear stringy poop on the second day, but nothing since. We moved him to a 16 gal. qt tub filled with 10 gal. of water from a 55 gallon tank that held plants and two small goldfish last night. The water in the tub is treated with Kanaplex because we thought it might be a bacterial issue and he had a torn fin. Here are the stats of the hospital tub: Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tank) 0 * Nitrate level(Tank) o * Ammonia Level(Tap) 0 * Nitrite Level(Tap) * Nitrate level(Tap) * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines)6.5 * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops?
