Smile Good news for my new CT, Kovu!

SO....I don't know if some of you guys remember my last thread about Kovu, but he wasn't doing so sharp.

He wouldn't swim around, would float on his side, wouldn't eat, had clamped fins a sickly colour in his face.....

now today, for the first time since I got him (a week ago), he ate a couple of bloodworms! 8D He's swimming around and showing off....I'm so happy<3 c'x

I basically ruled out what the problem was. It was his gravel....it was Marina black coloured aquarium gravel....
I've rinsed it so many times and even boiled it! But now I know it was the gravel (I don't currently have the gravel in there anymore and the water is clear!). It also had this nasty odour...like WD-40 or paint!

So I guess Kovu won't have any gravel for awhile (that's okay, right?) but its better than him dying!

Wow, I think it was a good idea that you got the gravel out of there. It is very strange that it had a WD-40 odor to it. I would just toss that gravel to be on the safe side.
Glad he is doing better!

No gravel will be fine, and it'll be easier to clean. Good to hear he's doing better!
