Okay so, Merlin's stuff came back. I decided that since when he was in the one gallon, it went away...I put him back in it. So I guess the one gallon will be his home for a while. He doesn't like it, at all. But I should have money in a month or so and I'll get him something a bit bigger.
Fishy is still in the vase....annnddd I was staring at Blue yesterday and guess what? Found a couple holes! He just never flares out, but I put him in a tank with Aqua yesterday & he flared, saw the holes. So I put him in that 3 gallon bowl, but only put in a gallon and a half of water to treat him. Changing his water everyday. Ugh. Anywho, that's what's going on now.
