Okay guys @koko wanted me to start a new thread with the fish I have now. Soxxy passed away, now I just have mae and beauty. Mae is acting like she has swim bladder now and Beauty still bottom sitting. I gave Mae some of the medicated food with metroplex. I added salt to the tank. What should I do? ?

in tank...

pH: 7.6

Ammonia: 0.5ppm 

Nitrite: 0ppm

Nitrate: 0ppm (WHY?)

Doing a large water change. Like 70% then I'll add the salt back in. Other ideas? I can't loose these guys too. :cry

OKay hun... Man. 

Lets for one have two filters in this tank if you can. This will help with cleaning the tank out. When you clean out your only filter it can cause this small bump and make Green water. If you can I would go with a Sponge filter set up hun. :)

This is how I do my 36 gallon bow tank. I got a 70 AC HOB and a sponge filter too. So when I clean my HOB I let my sponge stay in there getting all dirty till I can see it needs to be rinsed and then I don't clean my HOB for a week after I clean my Sponge :)

When you can get me a video hun :)
