8 is way too many. You should be doing 2 twice a day or 4 in one sitting. I'm sorry she passed away. In the future treat with 1tsp epsom salt per gallon, you can bump up to 2tsp and then 3tsp if needed.

I am sorry she passed, she was beautiful.

They are, the light hits her fins and it flashes turquoise. If she was a male, I know she would be gorgeous
