So this morning my little guy was swimming around and I even woke up to a nice bubble nest that took up a significant part of the top of the tank.
Now he's laying at the bottom of the tank barely moving and it looks like he's gasping for air. He'll swim up to the top frantically every so often and gulp some down before floating straight back down.
The only thing I noticed was one little white speck that COULD be ick forming.
I've only had him since Tuesday so I haven't really got much of a routine or anything down yet but here's what I've got.
1.5g tank (100% water change and I washed out the gravel yesterday) conditioned but not filtered.
Eats 4 aqueon pellets a day.
Tank stays in the mid-80's.
I have no way to check water parameters due to not knowing about it being important until after I had him and haven't been able to get back to get a kit yet (and I'm not sure I could afford one right now.) I wish I could figure out what's wrong so I could at least try to help him. He hasn't acted like this at all since I've had him.
