Smile He's getting better!!!

For all who remeber, Velvet has SBD. Well, I figure it was caused because I don't presoak his pellets in water (Which I'm doing from now on!) Well, some people reccomended different treatments. Yesterday he got 1 or 2 pellet sized bites of pea. Today, just a few hours ago, I gave him a water change with espom salt and raised his water temp. to 82 degrees.

Just a few minutes ago.... He was swimming all around his tank! He has to struggle, and his body starts tilting so his tail is stuck up, but he's not stuck on the surface! I think he's swimming around (mostly on the bottom) because there might be a few ants under his tank. I'm ganna leave them there, he's getting excersize (which will help him heal quicker, I'm guessing) And has something to do.

W8... I think he might just be checking out the rocks or looking for lost bits of pea that he didn't eat when I was feeding them to him yesterday...

I was so excited that he's healing up that I just had to post about it!
