I know! It frustrates me so much! >:( it saddens me to go to walmart because it is so bad that you can smell it. It's horrible! One day I hope they are recognized!

Thank you for all of your help. I will do an update tomorrow on how he is. I will do a water change and do what you said!

AQ salt, pre-dissolved, helps boost the immune system and fights off any possible infections (outside of the body). Do not overmedicate for anything else unless you are positive he has it. Darting does not always mean sick... It is also a sign of stress or shyness, as my dumbo who is in peak condition, darts away as he is very very shy. New fish will dart as well. Clean and warm water is the key. I'm sure he will get better with your care.

Thank you! I dissolved it in a different container and then poured it in before I put him in. In one night he has already gained much more color! :)

He is looking a lot happier now. The red spots on his anal fin match up with his red ventrals. Unusual looking boy you have there.

I agree with the others that for now you should stick to just AQ salt and clean water, unless he has any obvious signs of serious medical problems! Also his colours are AMAZING-the name Oasis came to me as soon as I saw him!
