Mahak's tail seems to be shredding a bit, there rips and it is making us nervous. The amonia is high and the pH, this is making us nervous too. Right now we are cleaning the dying plant bits and looking for a bulb that never sprouted. We are salting the tank with each water change and watching him closely. --I'm attaching a photo too.
