same here! just make sure he is warm and comfy and salt never hurts! Just do not add to much and remember. It does not evaporate. So when you do the 50% changes, only add 50% of the salt. Not the full amount as you would in a full change.

hmm he could have been constipated ( did you notice what his poop looked like if he did poo?). I would fast him a day or two and let his system clear out just in case. I hate fasting my guys,but i have been told by experts it does not hurt them and is good for them. Keep on eye on him, keep him comfy, and keep as updated =]

I didn't notice any poo so I am going to fast him and see if that helps I'll start with two days fast and if he doesn't seem 100% I'll do a third but i never go over three.
