Oh it was from having no lights for a 5 day period. I'm seeing now if it gets any better. I THINK the BAG got better and the brown algae is slowly getting better. My fish is slowly getting used to the 1/4 lighting scenario, I put the cardboard under the light instead of so close to the water since it got wet X_x ooops....
Anyway, things are going a bit better since that happened. Good grief. XD my fish doesn't swim around as fast, he's acting slow but at least he's calmer. He loves to stay on the lighted side for some reason, I never see him anywhere else. XD Hahaha.
