When I change his water after I change it, I add the water conditioner. Then I float him in his cup for 15 mins. Then I add a tablespoon of new water to the cup every 10 mins for an hr as has been outlined for me on this forum. When I put the new water in I make sure the temp is the same from the faucet and in his tank by running the thermometer under the tap.
The heater I have is a 10 watt one. It's preset to 26 degrees so it never goes higher than that. When it starts going under 24 degrees it will come back on automatically.
Ill admit I haven't done the panty hose test yet...I actually don't think I have any so I shall go and get some.
It actually says they are granules on the packet. I normally put between 10-12 in his tank and I always wait to make sure he finishes them. If he leaves any I remove them.
The main ingredient in his food is fish meal.
Should I start treating his water with aquarium salt?
All his levels are great, and I think can see another tiny hole :(
