I don't have any daphnia, but I might try and go grab some tomorrow if I can. I hope he makes it through the night... he doesn't look good :(

okay, I won't feed him anything. It was just a thought, that's all...

His water is about 77 degrees right now. I have a small heater, do you guys think I should use it in the tank? I don't want to stress him by adding something new. Also, what should I do to get the heater ready to go in so it doesn't contaminate anything? It is new and in the box right now.

I usually just rinse my heater out with hot water. test the heater first in a similar sized container to see that it does its job.

Not any that hold 2.5 gallons, no...

My heater isn't adjustable or anything, it's not prgrammable... is it okay to use it?

It should be ok. but it is always a good idea to test new heaters. try it on a 1 gallon first....? if it heats thats ok, maybe it will be ok...

Maybe it's best not to use it after all right now. If he pulls through this I will see about finding some way to test this out and all, but for now, I don't want to stress him... changing his water temperature might freak him out.
