Ace

Ace isn't looking so spiffy today. He's really lethargic, and he barely ate any food, when usually he's attacking himself to get at it. It's really worrying me. He looks the same as always, just slow. The water temp is fine. He's hiding in his pagoda, and it took me about 5 minutes to get him to come out. I don't see any fungal infections, and his fins look just like they always have. I don't see any labored breathing, but his fins do look a little clamped. Any ideas on what's wrong with my baby?

:( I'm not sure.... Try giving him a salt bath and see if that perks him up a little. Maybe try and entice him with a Bloodworm too?

I'll try it. I gave him a 100% water change, and I'm adjusting him now. I'll give him a salt bath in maybe an hour or so.

I gave him a 100% water change and he's good as new. When I was cleaning it there was some incredibly gross stuff in the water for some reason, which is the reason for his sickness, I think. The water is now completely clean, with no trace of that stuff. Ace is 10x happier now (:
