(baby) got sick last night and I posted about it, he's not moving, not stopping even the slightest movement from pushing him around. He's breathing hard and I think that he's probably not going to make it much longer.
Now Mohak seems to be sick tonight. --*they have never shared a tank.
(adult) seems to have something stuck in his mouth, he's trying to dislodge it but it's just not coming out, he was taking more frequent breaths, swimming back and forth fast when before he would glide along calmly.
His gills are pretty puffed out and he's breathing rather quickly and he's taking pretty frequent rests, now he seems to be laying at the bottom and staying longer.
He is also making his fins stand up and out a lot, maybe to make himself seem bigger? Maybe because he's scared?

-please, if there is anything we can do for Mahak, let me know. I know we could try with the gentle tweezers, I'm not sure we have those right now.
We've put so much love and care into these sweeties and I just want them to be okay, I know Sanim's survival is unlikely but I am holding out for Mahak.
