He'll stay in his cup for sure- I just wasn't sure if the cup should be in the tank for warmth or out of it to reduce stimulation.

Thank you. I've had great help from DarkMoon before :)

I really hope he does alright, though he's not looking very good right now. I really love this guy, he has such a goofy personality.

Thanks so much for your help tonight, I really appreciate it!

Yeah, I think floating will be best. I'd worry about his immune system crashing if he got too cold.

You're welcome. I'm sorry it wasn't just a pellet that you could easily dislodge. :( You're doing a great job though and I'm sure he has the best chance possible in your care. :)

Thanks. I'll update in the morning.

Jeez, I didn't even finish my tank changes and it's 2am. Guess the girls will have to live in their cups overnight :S

I'm so sorry. :( It wasn't Alice, was it? Blue cambos are so hard to find and she's so pretty.

You've had a rough day, haven't you?

It sure was!! She developed problems with chronic constipation, and despite regular epsom salt treatments and feeding her frozen-thawed bloodworms one at a time for several months, she died some time today trying to pass her poo. Makes me sad that she suffered :( She was so fat and sassy. I find that with my females, when I've had a few together for a long time, when one goes they all go. The bunch that are all the same age that included Alice has lost three total in the past two months- two of old age and now Alice.

Sure have. Mac is in aq salt in his cup in the tank. He's getting up for air so I'm happy about that. I really need to get some sleep though :S

Yeah, you've had a long day. I'm sorry about beautiful Alice and I sure hope Mac pulls through. Night!

Mac seems about the same as last night. He's feisty- still getting up for air, but his gills are still very inflamed and he has a hard time staying upright. Changed the water in his cup- sticking with 1tsp of Aq salt/gallon
