Thank you! Tomorrow is my birthday so I am hoping that this one is my "lucky birthday fish" LOL. Hopefully if this fixes the problem I can get some more eventually. I am supposed to be getting a 5 gallon tank in the next few days and I can't decide if I want to put some dividers in it and get more males or put some females in. If I were to put dividers, how many males could I put in? 2 or 3? And if I put females in, how many?

You have to have 4 or more females and they need a bigger tank than 5 gallons, more like a 10 gallon. You COULD divide a 5 gallon in half. That gives each fish 2.5 gallons to live in.

when you add them do you acclimate them to your tank in their before pouring them in? Sometimes if you don't they can get thermal and pH hock and die a few days later.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. The new little guy is doing very well!! He is just swimming around and playing!! He is going on 24 hrs!!!! I think I MAY have fixed the problem. (Still have fingers crossed...lol) Changing the water conditioner and taking the filter out has helped!! Happy Birthday to me!!! LOL
