Both of my boys are sick!

Here's what happened:

I went out of town for a few days on a personal business trip, expecting to be back no later than three days. Due to unforeseen circumstances, I was delayed (aka, stranded) and could not get back to my boys until tonight (it was a long train ride).

Both Taco and Tian-Tian were left in the care of my folks, but I left no instructions on water changes (expecting I'd be back soon enough). So... long story short, I'm treating both Taco and Tian-Tian for fungus.

I know Tian-Tian is an old fish and I don't know if he'll pull through, but Taco is young and lively. However, both are being fasted for tonight. I've changed out 100% of their water for tonight and will deal with them in the morning.

More updates to come as time goes by.

Aww I hope they pull through! Tian-Tian has been pulling through a lot - he seems like a strong fish.

.... hey, um, guys?
There's something I need to tell y'all.

I have some..... GOOD NEWS!!!!!!

Tian-Tian and Taco both seemed to magically heal overnight; I did a thorough cleaning of Tian-Tian's tank before I left on my trip, and he's back in it now, swimming all over the place and just as healthy as ever!

Augh, after so much worrying and trying my darndest to get Tian-Tian better, he's back to his normal self. Even Taco seems happier than usual! I don't see any fungal symptoms from last night; perhaps I was so tired from my trip that I was mis-reading my boy's reactions to me changing their water. After all, I did come home in the middle of the night, haha. They might've been sleeping for all I know!

Anyway, so after much trial and tribulation, my boys are back to normal. *throws confetti*

Thanks to everyone that helped and for all of your support!

So my next step is to invest in a bigger tank for my boys; Taco has outgrown his little 1 gallon already! Goodness me!
