Yeah, I'm keeping him in his three gallon for treatment, easier on all of us that way. I'm just shocked at how he acts when in the cup. He used to see the cup and swim right in, because I guess he associated tank cleaning days with blood worms.

It looks like his color is coming back in, thankfully. Still a bit grey, but a gray-ish magenta, magenta being his normal color. Still treating with epsom salt for the ammonia burns though.
