Ok, so, I redid the entire tank. Took out all the sand and used clay pots for my plants. I added him back in on Saturday, November 24th and so far I'd like to say everything is going well. Knock on wood. He's been eating well and isn't skiddish. I've got him on spinach now too and I also feed him an occasional veggie round while also feeding him pellets majority of the week. I want to get gel food too, or make my own, only if he is well for at least 2 weeks. I completely replaced all the media in the filter as well, so I have been doing water changes and such to keep up with the lack of a cycle.

Looking good. Is that bridge hollow inside?

Looks really good!  What Koko is getting at is that if that ornament is hollow you may want to fill it with sand and silicone to prevent gases and mulm from getting trapped in there.  Otherwise just be sure to lift and shake it out each water change to get any old stuff out of it as that can be one possible vector for issues in a tank.  It is less likely barebottom than with a bridge or tower sunk into substrate, though!

The bridge isn't hollow inside. It's officially been 2 weeks of Karma being back and he's still doing real well.

Oh good!  That shouldn’t be any issue then.  And I’m glad to hear everything still looks good - woohoo!
