    Hello all, I posted this topic a few days ago and things seemed like they where getting better for my poor magneto... But now he is acting very lethargic and kind of just floats around or will fide under a plant so he wont float away. Since I posted the other topic I was doing small water changes every day and he seemed to be healing. now this... Water params are the same as before, ill fill out another form though.

    He looks so good this morning Ive had his for less than a year I just dont remember what month I got him in, but it was definitely after summer ended, i was just rounding. Right now im only feeding him the soilent green because in the past he wouldn't eat veggies he would just spit them out... but i was thinking about picking up bloodworms/other creepy crawlies from the pet store.. the freeze dried kind lol. I havent tried egg whites though!

    I'm happy to hear that. I sort of hate myself for doing this to him haha, but im trying my best to keep his water sparkly clean.

    I kept getting weird readings for ph... the first few times the regular ph was bright bright blue basically a false reading because that color isn't on the sheet and the high ph test would be bright purple, and I know its not that high. I re tested a few times and finally I completely cleaned a tube and the high range test came out at 7.4-7.8... so normal right? I cant test my tap ph just now but last time i checked a couple months ago it was pretty soft... like 6.3-6.7 :/

    I will defiantly do an update video when I get home from work. He was never floaty previous to being stuck on the filter. He also didn't have any symptoms except for the brown spots which are located down on the sides of his belly. His poop has always looked the same, brown and full (lol) not stringy or white. When I left for work he seemd okay, he's just swimming a little strangely, he's not floaty anymore and he hasn't lost his apitite.

    Thank you! He isn't struggling to swim down anymore but there are still bubbles stuck to him. I guess thats an improvement?

    I put some extra filter pad over the intakes and turned the filters back on... he seems to be struggling slightly while swimming but hes not getting stuck

    Yeah, I'm working on uploading it! Thanks!
  14. My magneto is having real issues and im scared to death. I found him stuck to the filter and there where bubbles all over his body, so im thinking his slime coat is damaged. I have turned the filters off for now. Last night I forgot to add prime to my water and didn't realize untill maybe a couple of hours later. Today I found him really lethargic and floaty. I have noticed some brown spots on him as well, though I was assuming those where ammonia burns healing. I do 50% w/c every week and unfortunately I am over stocked. I have 1 fish in a 10-12 gal tank and that has worked for me for about a year. I am unable to get a bigger tank at the moment. Please help me I'm terrified for him Test Results for the Following: * Ammonia Level(Tank)- less than .25 * Nitrite Level(Tank)- 0 * Nitrate level(Tank)- 0ish * Ammonia Level(Tap)- less than .25 * Nitrite Level(Tap)- 0 * Nitrate level(Tap)- not sure, but last time a checked 0 * Ph Level, Tank (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) * Ph Level, Tap (If possible, KH, GH and chloramines) Other Required Info: * Brand of test-kit used and whether strips or drops?

    Accidental Temp swing

    I think the tap may have been colder than usual because of the blizzard
