Sir Gawain was sitting on a shelf in the pet store in between a beautiful red and green male and a very shy little blue male. Sir Gawain is all white, and iridescent. The little blue male was being flared at by the big Green male, and so Sir Gawain stepped in between the blue male and the green male and flared right back, almost like a knight in shining armor. It reminded me of the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight from the Arthurian Legends. >_< I'm such a nerd.

Morro: I love the story! Arthurian legend rocks. Ever seen Spamalot, the musical "lovingly ripped off from the movie"? Don't worry, I think we're all nerds here in one form or another.

Amph: He should be fine until morning, he may not even need them but it's always a great idea to have epsom salts on hand.

Bettawolf: What's wrong with your girls?

FISHIE UPDATE!

So it seems he has SBD. He swam about half way down his tank and just floated right back up to the top tank without him downing anything. He did this twice.

So the question is. Do I put him in a QT tank with a little water to let him rest there. OR do I lower the water in the main tank so he can rest either in his tunnel or on his plant?

Rocky: HMs are fun! But have lots of epsom and AQ salt on hand, they do tend to have fin and constipation issues.

Bettawolf: How high are the nitrates? Did they just start stressing out?

Amph: Lower the water level in his regular tank for now, I think moving him to a new tank so soon would stress him out. Get some epsom salts tomorrow, non-scented and all that.
