He seems to be doing much better now. He is not swimming around jerkily, his fins have somewhat relaxed and his regular color is back. I will post a video of him when it finishes loading. Not sure...

The tank is definitely cycled and has been for some time. Ammonia is 0. Nitrates are also to 0 because of the plants. Our well water when I had it tested for nitrates actually comes up as "trace" at...

I had not cleaned the tank with bleach. I had read that if parasites don't have a host, they would die off so that is why I waited three weeks before getting another fish. The tank consists of coarse...

He died on day 29 and I did not have a receipt, so it was nice of Petco to offer me credit ($20, expensive little guy). I'll wait a week or two before getting a new fish so anything in the tank will...
