There is a lot more information in the form than just test results, and I know you answered quite a bit in your video, but having all the information layed out in the form makes it a lot easier for the mods to assess the situation

 

But, just to be clear, you only just got this fish and he hasn't been in any of your tanks apart from this hospital one?

"please learn to read"? that's a bit harsh and condescending, don't you think? everyone has different reasons as to why they will not get info from a video. some are even time limited and cannot watch a whole video. but to address anyone with "please learn to read" is like asking you to "please learn some manners". we do our best to not be so abrupt on this site since everyone like you have come to us for either our knowledge or help on fish health and maintenance.

we have a form for cases posted in this forum. please fill it out and we will see how we can help. copy it from our Admin's post to you and paste it with your answers.

:o

we are all volunteers with our own busy lives.  Watching a 6 minute video isn't really an option.  The form makes the info easy to find in a short amount of time.  

You can get your water tested at pet stores if you don't have a kit.  You need to go there to get meds. Bring along some water samples...
