Yea, I see my Sapphire all over again, but I did use AQ salt, and his turnaround was miraculous, I hope you have the same results, just give him time, and patience..hope he pulls thru..poor lil guy looks like he is in terrible shock..:(

How did you treat him...? Mine seems so fragile right now. even his pectorals are stuck together. he doesnt use any of his fins. he doesnt move. he barley even breathes.....

I slowly brought down the ammonia yesterday night. Also left some floaters in the tank to soak up any excess.

I have salt in with the IAL...
