Okay, went and got some Aquarium Salt from Walmart.

How should I add it to the tank? Should I add it before I add him or after?

I have the same tank. The filter seemed to strong for Buster too so I baffeled it with a ziplock snack bag with some marbles and water in it. Then placed it over the out flow. Seems fine now. Buster will wiggle his way behind the bag then rocket out with the flow like a water slide though. He seems to like it.

The first one that I bought from Wal-Mart was broken up just like yours too! I turned around and went right back, got me another one, checked it out in the store, then came home. NOT A GOOD DAY. I am 30 - 35 minutes away from Wal-Mart! Made me so mad. Thankfully, they did have one other one at the store and it was ok.

That would still be about 5 times more than the minimum size. Dividing that tank would work just fine, if you wanted to go that route!

He didn't make it. We are taking his body back to Walmart tomorrow, along with a letter to the manager.

Thanks everybody. It's sad but I did the best I could with him. At least he didn't die in dirty pee colored water.

On another note, I just finished getting my purple boy, Purple Haze used to the temp and water so now he is in the 5g. I will check on him later and if he is doing good I will take some pictures. He was healthy to begin with so I think that he will make it. He ate the bloodworm I gave him when I first put him in so it all looks good =)
