Hey guyyyys. (: Sooo I did a water change last night, and because Golem wasn't in the mood to get into the cup, I left him in the tank with the other fish (2 otos, 2 rabbit snails, 10gal reg).
By the end of the 'experience' (his first in tank wc) he was sitting at the bottom and breathing heavily. I knew he was stressed because water changes are always awkward in a dorm room, but after 3 mins he was fine. Ate his dinner, and was his normal self.
I dont want to specifically stress him out on purpose. But is there a way to put water in
the tank a little more gracefully? I have a gallon jug that I've been using for the 10gal. But if I dont have to cup Golem every time that'd be amazing.
Any advice would be appreciated! (:
Edit: Water was the same temp as tank temp and treated with Prime before being added to the tank.
