I gathered brown, off the ground, oak leaves (in the rain, no less), brought them home and steeped them for 10 minutes. Cooled the water and now I'm ready to add it to Oliver's water, but don't know how much to add?
He's the one that got so cold at my office building and I brought him home. I have him in a holding cup (from the store) in dechlorinated water treated also with Prime and Stress Coat and one grain of Aq.Salt. He sits on a heating pad that keeps his water about 76.
His fins are really clamped and he is getting skinnier every day. When I go to feed him, he seems very eager, but he seems to spit the food out and I'm not seeing poopies in the water. He is somewhat active and has been very interactive with me..
What can you suggest?? Is tannin the way to go? How much?
