Ooops. I've done that. Normally my laptop is plugged in all the time (I know, probably not good for the batteries). But once in a while, I'll tug it loose without knowing and then a few hours later, I'll get the "Warning: less than 20% battery power remaining" and I'll be like "Whaaaaaa?!?"
Hello, I am new to this. I have recently rescued a Betta on Monday. He was in a gallon tank at work. The owner put some type of small frog in the tank on a Friday and Monday his tail looked chewed on so she took the frog out. Then the fish started getting white patches, so we bought ich medication and some other stuff. Each time the tank was cleaned the next day the water was cloudy. The fish quit eating about a week ago, his lips were swollen, eyes were huge and cloudy and he just lays on his plant. They gave up on him but I refused to, so I brought him home. I bought a 5 gallon tank yesterday, with pump, filter and heater and all new stuff. I was told to only use Distilled water to fill it. The water was clear until today. Then I read not to use Distilled water which scared me so I took out about a gallon of water and replaced it with tap water and added the conditioner. His eyes are almost back to normal now, but he isn't active. He stays at the top of the tank in the corner. Please help I don't want him to die.
distilled water lacks the minerals fish need. Tap water with water conditioner works best.
Stumpy passed. I literally have NO clue what happened for him to turn like that. I was only giving him 1 drop of the rid ich. the larger kritter keeper was only half full, so that'd be about 2 gallons. So he certainly wasn't overdosed on the rid ich :,(
