Could've been high nitrates, yes.

I miss Sesshy.

Fishy, temps to 86 if they can stand it. Watch for signs of oxygen deprivation (they would be at the surface gasping). I'm not going to recommend salt for that tank, it would be a major, major pain to dissolve 3 tsps per gallon for that size tank. You might want to try Kordon Rid Ich or one of those products though if the heat doesn't do it. Also, vacuum the substrate as much as possible every day to pick up parasites that have fallen off.

EDIT: Laki, first days are always hard, aren't they? Going into something unknown like that. I'm glad today is going better and yikes, I hope you can find a good pair of shoes.

I bumped my heater as high and it goes. 88F. At parents house for a few. I'll knock it down to 85-ish when I get home.

Good news. My little stripey (in the hospital tank) showed activity today. It was cute. He was wiggling his stumpy self all over the place. Recorded a video of it and uploading right now. Looks pathetically stumpy. But im happy to see good results in him.

There are alot more stickers but those are the best and the Japanese papers. Those are pretty sweet too.

Thank God I found the guppy soon... Stupid girl jumped out of her (now covered) holding container. I found her right after dinner, still, but when I touched her she wiggled. So I picked her up and dropped her back in. She's fine now!

No, Bekah. You WANT them. Not need them. Well for a betta addict, it maybe need.
