Jonah is breaking my heart. I have no idea what to do. He's been like this for approximately one week give or take a day. He is constantly clamped, turns his nose up to food, and hides in his plants very close to the surface. Someone suggested he has TB which is contagious to humans now I'm terrified to get even near him for obvious reasons, but I did clean his tank today and washed my hands thoroughly when I was done. What should I do? I know the pH of my water is high, but he's acclimated every time I change water, even when I do 50% changes. Help?
