Bowser is sitting in a cup in an inch of water while I wait for my ice to form, I have clove oil. I'm going to be doing combination clove oil/ice water for his going-away.
He shared a tank with Ludendorff who is also acting old so I'm not ruling out that he might suddenly go under like Bowser did. Just keeping my eye on him. My question is: there are live plants and Milly the nerite in there. If Lude passes or needs a going-away ceremony how long will the tank need before I can add another fish or Osha? And will Milly carry any diseases for long periods of time? I don't know if my boys are just old or if whatever's on Lude's gill was a disease and spread to both?
I removed the divider and I can tell now that's there's more space for plants to suck up harmful things. And I think I have one carbon filter cartridge left too.
