Ok, yeah, will do. Temp is 65 degrees in the tank right now. (My house is heated to 70 or 72 but it drops to 66 at night).

Well I didn't find my spare heater but nevermind, the fishes are all eating now!

I kept a backdrop on this tank, as fishes seem to feel more secure with a dark side.

At least, they have better color

And my white clouds sure are feeling spunky. Two males are sparring and flashing their fins at each other, it's really something to see. Lots of chasing around the tank. Of course they're too quick for my camera but here you can see two flaring at each other (lower right corner of the driftwood chunk), third fish is a streak with a stripe just to the right of that (probably a female)

Maybe I will get some minnow fry after all. That would be so cool.

Yesterday my paradise fish didn't eat. Sitting in a corner just below the surface. I looked close- ugh, he's swollen around the vent again and I think I saw a red worm hanging. I did the tedious meticulous gravel vac job with a fifty percent water change on the three affected tanks today, then dosed the second round of levamisole and draped towels over to keep them dark. Sigh.

At least the guppies and white clouds are still flitting around with plenty of energy.

Uncovered the tanks and did all the huge water changes. Laddie chased up and down the front glass eager for food almost immediately. Glad to see that.

I suppose I should post an update tho I have no pics to share. Things have been kinda crummy here. Well, my fishes are all still alive. I did third treatment but not quite on the right day and wasn't able to clean all the tanks after properly. The guppy 20L got a huge wc but this tank hasn't yet at all- white clouds in here look fine but my paradise fish has clear/white poo again I'm so frustrated with it but unfortunately can't do much. Very long story short- my house had serious plumbing issues and is not habitable right now. Fumes make me feel very ill, trouble thinking, headaches and all. Had plumbers out three times already and it's still not fixed. Staying temporarily with relatives next town over. I go to the house to check on things, water the plants, feed the cat and fishes once a day- but ten minutes in the house and I feel ill again. Managed to clean the guppy tanks but didn't have the time to do this one. I hope I will soon- early next week looks like the repair will get done. But meanwhile I'm pretty sure Laddie still has the parasites and I don't know if will every shake it. Feeling very down. At least I can work on starting the garden outside (not feel affected by the problem indoors) some of the plants already think it's spring!

ugh, sorry to hear about the issues. your health is paramount so take care of yourself first! hang in there! a step back from the tanks may not be a bad thing either. wishing you better fortunes down the road.
