Ooo... does it matter where in the filter? Maybe another sponge? Or actual filter floss? ?

Well couldn't find filter floss at my local store. lol. Not kidding. Amazon maybe?

Tested the trash can water from the next day:

pH: 7.6

Ammonia: 0ppm

Nitrite: 0ppm

Nitrate: 0ppm - hmm....

Thoughts? 

Prazi is in there, but wasn't sure if I needed to add salt back.

Ok hun our Ph is dropping in the tank it looks like. Just enough to make me wonder about the cloudiness. What are we using to keep the Ph up?

Yes salt please :) No blue floss? https://www.amazon.com/Value-Bonded-White-Filter-600-square-inches/dp/B00B50UPE0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495848011&sr=8-1&keywords=filter+floss

I was thinking that too...

I was previously using Wonder Shells but haven't added a new one since I started salt and medication because I thought maybe it would conflict? 

I'll add a couple more tsps of salt now, thank you!

I didn't see anything like that, they only had actual sponges... I'm gonna try Petco tomorrow.

I used my Wondershell when I used General Cure and didn't have any effects. :)

Good to know dear, I will put another one back in then!! I just didn't know if it was too many things at once, with Prazi and Salt. haha

Do you keep one in there constantly to help with PH?

I figure there has to be a reason this is happening and Beauty is still bottom sitting. :undecided: who knows!

Very true! 

 

Okay so so it looks a little better today. Did another 50% water change just now. Still green water, but maybe instead of adding Prazi back I should add that clay? What are your thoughts? Had to order filter floss on amazon, waiting for that to come.

@koko Maybe I should add TWO wonder shells? ? Or the koi clay instead of more salt and Prazi? Besides beauty bottom sitting they all seem to be better!
