urg. norton is missing a chunk from his tail as of this morning and it is on the bottom of the tank! he must have caught it on something, but I don't know what! I want to take it out whatever it is. I just have plants. could it have gotten caught in the filter?

okay! thanks. :)

that's what I told my mom but she started freaking out saying that I hurt him when I weighed him yesterday... :doh11:

Wallace is fabulous!

do you think 50-75% wcs every day will be okay? he wasn't acting weird when the ammonia was 0.5, when I had a cycle bump a while ago norton started acting weird so I knew something was up.

Wallace is happily eating his food and the redness in his tail is almost gone. I don't really see anything to be concerned about besides occasional yawning.

am I eventually going to prazi him or no? and should I up the salt to 0.2?

50-75% daily will be fine, the prime will cover the ammonia that builds up between water changes. If there is a day where you are unable to do a water change for some reason, you can add a double dose of prime if ammonia + nitrite are under 1 ppm.

Please do raise salt to .3% :) I'd like him to be at .3% salt for a week. Lets asses the need for prazi after that.

I don't see why not :)

I have been so busy this week so far, but its all packed up and ready to go and I have time tomorrow afternoon to get to the post office. I am going to send it priority mail so it shouldn't take long to get to you ;)

So can I weigh him and give him the amount he should regularly eat starting Friday? (That will be one week from the day I got him)

Sorry I should have added this to the last post ;)

Yes, you can weigh him if you like ;) I would definitely use a tupper ware to scoop him up to get him over to the scale, as this will probably be the least stressful way to handle him.

Is he at .3% salt now?

really??? what about the smell?? :o

I have root tabs with the plants, which are black...but I've never bad a problem before! I took the plants and the pots out, and threw away the sand and put the plants in a bucket, but I'm not sure they'll live too long in there...

could this have anything to do with the salt or prazi reacting with the root tabs...?

thanks SO much
