Here's where you can read the background story and what I've done so far: (Post is dated 4-2-14.) http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showthread.php?p=5684994&highlight=#post5684994
I've lost two fish so far. My last pictus is not handling the heat as well as it should be and I don't know what to do now. Petsmart does not seem to sell anything that actually works (medication-wise) and I've heard mixed things about pictus and salt.
I'd like to lower the water temperature a little and try some salt but I'm afraid that the catfish won't like that one, either.
Can anyone give me advise? The catfish is swimming near the top, going up and down the side, and/or laying in the corner with it's belly againts the glass and pushing itself up towards the surface.
Do you think it might help to add some more aeration?
