Parameters Malachite Green...trace present on once light brown sponge on filter intake. It dyes certain materials. I found my air stone tubing and sponges were dyed.

Inhabitants Angel
Comments Quarantine tank. The angel got some sort of parasite. It went blind, had a bloated stomach, and might have had fin rot. I fed it through a pipet for 4-5 months. Not a good time. It was on the tank bottom one night still breathing, and I decided to euthanize it.

I think by the looks of the photo thats an angel fish if so u should have it in somthin WAY larger than 10 gallons,but you could easily make a community tank or a small cichlid species tank with that tank
