You're not a terrible owner, you're doing the best you can for your little buddies. I'm sure they're feelin' the love, even when they're not at their healthiest.

I know :( its like I can see it in his eyes he's saying "help me" and I think he knows but he just wants to feel better. But even if I was a horrible owner I think they would still do the wiggle dance when I approached the tank because animals are like that... It makes me want to cry now thinking of all the abused/neglected animals that are loyal to their owners, still.

Anyways, he's in stress coat, now, and I'm getting some Vita Chem for his tail as Callistra suggested, similar to IAL. It's like vitamins that boost the immune system and act as a preventative, then I'll also order some Kanaplex with it to have on-hand (really, you can't be too prepared). The vita-chem will be very nice for my sorority since they are so delicate.

And on a side note, Okami jumped again today at dinnertime (can't remember if I already posted this, LOL) so cute <3

Thanks :)
He went back into his main tank today.. I think his color is a little better and his poo is definitely normal. Yesterday he had two 25% water changes in his one gallon hospital tank and today I siphoned out about 3 gallons from his main tank trying to get all the DOCs out. It seems there's a lot of DOCs in DaBaDee's tank... Every water change, there is stuff floating around (part of this is slime mold that won't stay off of his decorations! D:) Bahari's tank is always pretty clean, though.

The girls will have another PWC today, too, although I just did one yesterday... I have to work Friday, Saturday and Sunday :( so I wanted everything done today just in case I wouldn't have time this weekend. I've been doing water changes on the girls' tank at least every other day because I want their water to be super duper clean since they are in small, unfiltered tanks.. So I will have to find time Saturday, regardless.

Glad to hear he's well enough to be back in his main tank!


With the girls in their temporary tanks, if worst comes to worst, they should be okay for one extra day if you really don't have the time. Unfortunately life does get in the way and they have to wait juuuust a little longer. I'm sure they won't suffer for it. :)

I've been getting that slime mold in two of my tanks too! It just won't push off, despite efforts to get rid of the stuff. Infuriating, isn't it?

Ugh, I hate slime mold!! D:

My girls temporary tanks are one gallons so I'm already changing more than the recommended amount (I do about 75% every other day and sometimes more often than that) so I don't think it will hurt them but I just don't like taking chances :/
